It's rumored, Swiss Teams are interested in several finnish or swedish players (in particular Antti-Jussi Niemi and Marko Tuulola). Can you say something about those Players an have someone heard of other Players who are involved in rumours to Switzerland?

well, Tuulola hasn't played in Sweden for many years.. in fact he is rumored to come to Sweden. He was a good SEL defenseman in the SEL a couple of seasons ago and has developed into a star defenseman in the Finnish SM-Liiga. From what I understand he is an all-round defenseman and especially gifted offensively.

A-J Niemi has been pretty good with Frölunda this season, not spectacular but still good. His strength is his defensive game although he still contributes offensively. He has a good release from the blue and is quite physical.

Haven't heard any players rumored to go to the NLA yet.. though.
