I guess it's the Spengler Cup.

Why is Brunner playing for HC Davos? Do they switch teams there for tournaments? Color me confused. All these Euro tournaments confuse me to begin with.

Nice dive by Tavares. Brunner gave him a extra little shove into the boards for it. Atta boy.

Great. Now I feel all crazy talking to myself about a tournament I know nothing about.

I still would like to know why Brunner was playing for Davos. That confuses the hell out of me. I'm also curious how Thornton and Nash feel about playing for Davos and not Canada in this tourney.

Can a mod change the title to Spengler Cup, so at least it's on topic? Thanks.

How did Brunner look?

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

He was on the top line with Thornton and Kane, but got dropped to the second line by the 2nd (or 3rd?) period. I didn't get to watch the game as much as I would have liked since I'm at work so I mostly listened and took a peek when I had a chance.

did he get demoted for poor play or did they not explain it?

If they did, I missed it. I just heard them make mention of it.

During the spengler's cup, the league stops. A lot of players are free to play the tournament if a team ask them. For team Canada, they take players who are skating in Europe. But with the lockout, team Canada looks impressive. Spezza, Bergeron, Tavares and many more.

The tournament: 2 permanents teams, Davos and Team Canada. Are guest an another Swiss team, one from KHL, a German and the last one changes every year. Finnish, Swede or Slovakian. Brunner and Kane were invited by Davos. Marc Streit wanted to play but his team said no no no!

The game: IMO it was a mistake to play Brunner with Kane and The other one. Against Canada you think D first and these three just wanted to score. Paradoxically, Brunner looked good on the PK and better than Kane during the game IMO.
For Canada, they used 4 right handed players in PP. I think it's a bit strange.
Canada's coach is Doug Shedden, also coach of EV Zug. He knows Swiss teams very well and it's an advantage for team Canada.
