also, @Torero
any good places on the internet to read about swiss hockey history?
i was looking at rosters of past competitions on wiki and i noticed we have two olympic medals from a long time ago, sure but still i dont know when the drop off happened or were those medals pure luck?
It was another time, when international hockey was amateur, before the USSR started to play the game. Those medals weren't luck at the time, more like the result of a different context.
