Swiss hockey program is really coming along. Habs are smart to spend that kind of time scouting there

Isn't Robert Mayer Swiss too? Or is he just not included because he's terrible?

You do realize that Weber and Berger played in the OHL, so we are not really scouting more in Switzerland.

Diaz was probably scouted at the World Championship, when we went there to see Jagr play

I knew two girls from Switzerland. I think one liked me, but her English wasn't that good and the other was hot. They're both like Weber, German-Swiss.

Our style is to control the neutral zone, so Swisse are good.

Streit/Diaz, Habs were following Weber when he was in Langenthal. The Swiss have an excellent hockey program, come along ways in last 10 years. Once an international doormat of hockey they are close to getting into one of top hockey nations. Germany has too, but not like the Swiss

Very Impressed with how far the Swiss teams have come. They are very close to joining the group of countries that are legit threats in the international tournaments.

I love it. There are only really 6-7 real threats in hockey, and the more that reach that level the better it is for hockey.

Love the players coming out of there right now too. Versatile and skilled.

I had never heard of this Diaz kid until we signed him, but it really seems like he has a HUGE following from the swiss league.

I agree. Switzerland has been rising steadily in the hockey world and I think it is a good move to scout their prospects. When you look at them, they compete well in the world championships against quasi all star teams from the NHL. That tells me that they must have players that can play
