Zurich began last season a failure, not easily get into the playoffs, but they played brilliantly and became champions. After the victory of the season left the team coach Bob Hartley, who is now in Calgary Flames. In his place came Marc Crawford. This trainer has a solid background in the NHL. Coached seven seasons in Vancouver, three years coached Colorado for two years worked in Dallas and Los Angeles. In Colorado, he won the Stanley Cup. In 1998 he was the head coach of Team Canada at the Olympics. Last year was the coach of Team Canada at the Spengler Cup.
Of loss should be noted in the care Kolnik Rappersvill, Cory Murphy in Minsk Dynamo, Ziegler and Pittis (perhaps in Zug).
But came into the team are good enough players. One of the leaders of the attack Kloten, Switzerland national team player Roman Wick. Took a promising youth team player from Switzerland Heshler Malmo. Another player against Switzerland joined the ranks of the lions, forward Treshler from Geneva. Defender of Rappersvilla Maurer. From Tampa Bay came forward Ryan Shannon, who was invited to the U.S. team for the World Cup. His compatriot Leshof, defender of the Toronto Marlies (AHL) this season, too, will be playing for Zurich. Leshof also has experience of playing in the NHL. From Phoenix Brule also now a player in Zurich. Thus attack Zurich has become even stronger and faster. In fact, besides came Vick Shannon and Brule, there is a Canadian Tambellini, who brilliantly spent last season in Zurich and also has considerable experience of playing in the NHL. Of course, the Swiss national team player Andreas Ambühl will play an important role in the attack of Zurich. Zurich and have a fairly reliable goalkeeper Flyurer.
There are great defenders, many years campaigning for the national team of Switzerland, Seeger and Blindenbaher. So Zurich, is undoubtedly one of the favorites for this season.
Langnau last season disappointed their fans. Not met expectations Robert Esche in goal. In the offseason, he left the team. And the entire defense acted very disorganized. No more accidentally missed only Langnau Rappersvill. This season is no change to the direction of strengthening the team does not, and could not happen. Indeed, in Langnau finances sing romances ... strong team did not, and even the best striker of Moser (50 matches, 18 goals + 16 assists) had a serious injury at the World Cup and most likely will not play this season.
In place of the two goalkeepers Ash took Baumle (Ambri) and Hubli (Litvinov). Baumle planned as number one, but was injured. So start without him. Langnau expect to see on one of the bottom two places if they are higher, very much surprised.
