I'd like to disagree on both of these statements. From two games I saw with their participation they might sport a minus sign on their chest. Still a pretty negative trapping team even when they face teams of Latvia level. But I agree, it was even worse before, say, more than 5 years ago.

Seeing how amazing is your much hated Marcel in KHL, how much better he is than say our "offensive dynamo" Daugavins offensively, who more than holds his own against NLA Swiss superstars - I think the right coach (I won't help you with pointing such specimen out) could easily turn you your side in a scarier version of Switzerland.
