Of course he's slow, and he doesn't play as hard as I hoped after his NA-adventure. But I'm missing a guy like Gardner on the team, and he would be the closest...

Scherwey's combo of speed, powerskating, checking, strenght, forechecking and recklesness is very unique in Switzerland... so I could forgive about his bad offensive instincts and average hands. (As I've written a few posts above: For me he's one of this few europeens who could end up as a pest in the NHL)
Yes i saw his great goal. And I was surprised it was him ;-)

For Scherwey, he is like Deruns before his breaktrough season with Geneva. I dont say he must never be in a WM, but it seems way too early for me. Even if I'm for an younger swiss squad.

About Sprunger, his goal touch can help the team to beat smaller nations. How many snipers do we have in Switzerland? Brunner and him? Besides, he really step up the last 2 seasons and we didnt see him in the last WM and for the next. It's a lock for me for the future.
