Well even then...the next good Swiss NHL forward will be the first, right? It will most likely be Sven since the Isles were morons with Nino.

It's the same BS for why Kopitar went 11th because no player had come out of Slovenia, when there's no track record from that country, GMs/scouts can be scared.
