Ambühl has ZERO Business in the NHL.... and I'm swiss too. He clearly proved that he's not capable of doing that step. Any player that is not drafted in the first 2 rounds must prove himself on the farm, in a 3rd or 4th line role. If you prove to be good, your stock raises and you get other opportunities. Ambühl didn't.
Sorry guys, but if we all put away our lovely red'n'white Swiss sunglasses, the only guys from Switzerland currently belonging to the NHL are Mark Streit, Luca Sbisa, Jonas Hiller and Nino Niedderreiter (in 2-3 years).
Maybe give Roman Wick a chance, he is at least a big guy. But the rest from the Swiss team has no business in the NHL.
