The Swiss are usually rather.........neutral on this issue
I'm just kidding, but seriously it isn't unusual to see those names you posted. It isn't as if there has ever been a Swiss Sidney Crosby or anything. Michael Riesen is probably the best prospect they've ever had so it isn't as if it is a shock when most of them become busts. Maybe I am playing on the stereotype a bit here but I've always felt a Swiss player lacks the motivation to come over here when they can have a rather good life at home. As a GM, I wouldn't draft a Swiss player.
