Every one of the Top-8 teams are medal contenders as far as I'm concerned.
Yeah, just some of them have a better chance than others.

A lot would need to go right in order for Switzerland to medal. They play a strong, strong team game and could give any country a run for their money on any night, but it won`t be easy to medal with some of the elite teams in the picture.
