But more and more guys start to go to NA at a very young age (Nino, Baertschi, Andrighetto, Martschini (came back, though), Richard, etc.), which is a good sign.

We are still rising, but not in a spectacular way. And the last few tournaments have shown that we are able to outplay many teams, but winning the game is a whole different story.
no need to go anywhere, just make or have a team join KHL and bring over the rich Swiss hockey roots to the rest of Europe.
