    ->SwissHockeyNews will help you out with what’s going on here with Coaches/Teams/Players – in English 🙂
    It’s about the the ZSC Lions, not SC Bern as you were saying. And reported by a Swiss news Site and a Swedish newspaper. Anyway:

    Most! of the time, contracts in Switzerland are honoured (Hartley, yeah). Everything is a bit more stable round here (or slow, if you want ^^).
    And Grönborg always said, he was not going to “skip town”. So whatever the Devils would have maybe offered Zurich – no use, if he doesn’t really want to go. The Swiss NL and the NHL have only just agreed on a transfer agreement a few weeks ago – and well, it apparently doesn’t apply to coaches. The way I understand it, the talks never went that far…
