During the Olympics in 2006, the czech republic had their best players and Switzerland still beat them 2-3.

Shall i also remind you that Switzerland NEVER had the chance to put its best rosters. Even in Vancouver, many of the best players of the Swiss NLA were absent, for example, Bartschi, Guggisberg, Gardner, Reto Van Arx, Michel Riesen, Marcel Jenni etc.. defensemen such Beat Forster, Julien Vauclair and Roman Josi were all absents too.

I wonder with all those players missing, Switzerland could have beaten Canada and the US...We will never know, unfortunately...
