i am impressed each time.

... or is it me ?

(exemples of young Swiss guys that play better than what their draft level indicates are numerous)
C'mon! He put up great numbers last year but that doesn't mean a lot.. I mean he might be one of those guys who are dominant in junior but can't make it to the NHL. And the reason why he isn't invited to the NHL combine has nothing to do with the fact that he's swiss, I mean he's just too old and there are many other guys who are wayyy better than him! Plus I don't think scouts really care about where players come from, so stop thinking they don't like swiss guys or that they underrate them.
