Then you have guys such as Vauclair or Bezina, who won't be far removed from their prime in two years (they will actually be younger than Paterlini and Domenichelli were in 2010).
On the other hand, you can't expect all promising youngesters such as Cunti, Vermin or Sciaroni to successfully develop into olympic caliber players. Some will disappoint, while a guy nobody expect could turn into a solid player, just like Cunti this season and Brunner a few years ago.
Cunti probably will never be "solid"...too risky his game.
and quite a few people were expecting his turnaround after his good season with GCK ... too much talent
same with Brunner. you could see in his first season with Kloten that a lot has to go wrong, that he won't be successfull... too skilled and too eager to play the game to get lost...
same with Vermin, when he doesn't get injured severely, and adds a bit of weight in the off-season, he'll be a lock for Sochii IMO.
