On the other hand, I'm not sure if guys like Loeffel, Schäppi or Bärtschi will have developped enough in such a short time.

Then you have some players like Bykov, Pestoni or even Sprunger who I can't see ever being good enough for that level.
I agree with you on the first part. My was a pro vocation.

I disagree with the other rosters that are very conservative.
I really disagree on Bykov and Pestoni.

We can't thing forever to ever defend and maybe score. We need people who score. And these two are also very good d players.

I disagree with a lot of people on this website who says that Pestoni is not a good prospect and hofmann he is. I think that a very clever player, who defend, can pass, has a great shot, use his body very good despite the height and fight on every puck, he is better than an excellent skater with good skill.
I think by now that Pestoni and Vermin are good prospects like hofmann is.

I am sure that Bykov and Pestoni are by now good enough: for sure i have had enough of mediocrity of romy et socii.
I trust in a 20 years player who de facto has 1 point pro game and in 13 games a +10 stat (on 11 points, a good part of that in pp ==> very very few puck in own net for his trio)
I trust in a swiss center (and we need center!!) who has by now the same number of points then Brunner.
