The young bulls challenge the old bulls

If the hockey gods would care about justice, would play the EHC Biel as of today, against the EV Zug to their first League title in 36 years. (Quiz question: Who was the coach of that team?) And I am convinced that it would be as if Michael Hügli would have brought in the start minute of game 6 of the Biel in the lead. But no, Leonardo Genoni stretched out like the whale on the beach in the movie "Free Willy", cracking his leg in the height and deflected the Puck to the side. It was a Moment, in the Inspiration and happiness to newlyweds. And so it is that the ECC has to travel today at the launch of the final series in the Bern, Postfinance-Arena.

I'm expecting a classic between the Hyper-kinetic, ambitious Zugern and the gray-haired, battle-tested Berner veterans. They know what to expect from the EVZ, but I'm not sure if you are ready for the onslaught that is coming at you. We know exactly how Kari Jalonen makes his Team play. Never changes in size. Therefore, I believe that a lot depends on how its terms against player Dan Tangnes this series. He is so fearless that he 60 minutes allows his players completely off the leash, the weary Berner while relentlessly attacking?That would at least I do.

train is allowed to enter the Bernese creative players like Arcobello, Ebbett or sander no time with the Puck something – especially on the Powerplay. Each puckführende SCB-players should be put under pressure and checked. Based in Zug, Switzerland must ensure that it is for the Bernese to the touch, than you would by blowing sand. You, frustrate you, tire you race around the ears! This must be the recipe of the Zug. If you play, you win.

And now for the SCB. He did it with his back to the wall to return to its roots. In my last column, I asked: "Where's Tristan Scherwey?" He followed my call. Last we saw, again, the good old Scherwey, annoys the opponent, something malignancy bring, his Team drives with his Speed and his aggressive style of play. Poor Mike Künzle don't know now how it happened, when he landed in game 6 after a Check Scherweys crumpled in a corner. If Scherwey, is he the most effective player in the League. Then he drives his opponent to bad decisions. If he thinks, however, that he was a creative player or a scorer, he is ineffective. And then he skirt.

Now, Thomas Rüfenacht must discover his punishing body game. If I were Coach Jalonen, I would instruct him to go from the start Johann Morant under the skin to open up with him a feud that lasts the whole series. So he may be equal to the Fare and the Zuger instigator of deal. It is a lot of statements, what is happening today operations in the first few. The Zug will try their intensity from the Puckeinwurf enforce the Bernese will want to keep it. The series will be decided in the two fight and in the minds is: Who is willing to pay the price? The Zug will be to play fast, as they might be nervous. The Bernese will try to respond with hardness. I expect no Scanning, but a fierce battle from the first second.

As I rose in 1999, in my first Playoff with the ZSC Lions, I thought I was pretty good and could manage the Team to the title. It was a mistake! We failed miserably in the quarter-finals. The two final coaches need to be aware of that you are best advise to explain to your players the "battle plan" and leave the stage. This is the irony of coaching – often you are the better Coach for you, even though you get less coaching.

This should take heed, especially Dan Tangnes, for the first time in a Final. He has a young, aggressive Team that loves to run and to provoke Puckverluste. The Zug should not have to think big, but above all do. The SCB plays a überlegteres ice hockey . Coach Jalonen will have to send his fourth line more often on the ice, but for whatever reason, is repugnant to him. And his strategy in the neutral Zone to pull back to defend a lead, not to rise against the Zug. If the SCB is the red line price, the the EVZ in the cards – even more than the Genfern in the quarter-finals. What is my advice to the two Coaches? Makes the players realise where your priorities lie, and stand to the side!

This could be for a while, the last days of the age of the SCB in the sun. The Transfer-Playoff has won the younger of the EVZ, with the number of entries of Genoni and Hofmann. And I have the feeling, based in Zug, Switzerland are young and experienced enough to have a small advantage in this match. But, if we have taught the last few weeks, and then this: write the SCB never!

For me, it is the most attractive final poster that was possible. The two Teams have different Strengths and contrasting styles of play. It is like the beef of the young Zuger cops against the old Bernese bulls things, and both want to rule over the flock.

The SCB has a bit more Talent, but he must adapt to a frenetic, powerful game, he has never experienced before. It's going to hurt. Zuger need to keep your nerve and the Bernese out of Balance – for the night, for the seven games that will probably need to win the championship.
