– In Krefeld, there will be places to gain in defense
In view of the Beijing Olympics, all attention will be focused on the rear during the traditional Deutschland Cup. The Swiss team faces Slovakia this Thursday, then Germany and Russia this weekend.
With the announced presence of NHL reinforcements in Beijing, places in the Swiss workforce for the Olympic Games will be very expensive. TO Krefeld, within the framework of the Deutschland Cup, first and penultimate big meeting in view of the Olympics, it is above all at the rear that several internationals will have to show themselves in their best light.
The coach, Patrick Fischer, does not hide it: some selected know appropriately that their chances of selection for the Olympics are very thin, even non-existent, and the players evolving in NHL (dix elements) as well as some of those used at the lower level, the AHL (including former Biennese Janis Moser), will start with a head start.
