Not to get OT but we should also continue to probe sweden for talent. It's nice that we seem to try and corner the market in Switzerland but we should look at doing that in sweden too, such great potential. Just look at Collberg.
Anyway, Diaz is really playing well and I can't wait to see where he's at next year, seems like a late bloomer/someone who will just always be hungry to get better.
