You're obviously underestimating the level of the Swiss League here. Your comment about the Swiss League being comparable to an All-Star game might have been relevant 10 or 15 years ago, but it's not the case anymore. True, the players are smaller, softer, but it's still competition... It's definitely still behind the Russian and Swedish Leagues, but the claim that any other league in Europe is better than the Swiss League would be highly debatable. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that Romy will necessarily make an impact in North America, but the "Swiss League equals All-Star game" thing is incorrect.
