Swiss hockey prospects/state of hockey

First off I would like to say congrats to the Swiss WJ team, I think they played great and deserve a lot of respect. There has obviously been a lot more talented Swiss players coming through the junior ranks as of late. Niederetter, Baertschi, Josi, Sbisa, Weber and possibly Brunner are all young players who will make an impact or are in the NHL.

My question is, what is the current state of hockey like in Switzerland? I imagine the lockout has made the Swiss-A league that much more popular with so many NHL stars choosing to play there. How popular is hockey in Switzerland?
