This Swiss team belongs with the other top 6 countries( Can, Swe, Rus, Fin, Cze, USA). Hope they can keep it up in the future.

Not impressed by Yakupov this tournament nor this game. Maybe my expectations were to high given the fact that he went 1st overall.

And is it just me or are most of the Swiss players wearing old nike bauer helmets?

Yakupov hasn't really impressed anybody in this tournament. He's so intent on being the hero.

Dean Kukan, very impressed by him, had a bad game vs. CZE but otherwise he's been fantastic.

Honestly, yes. I feel like if Switzerland wins this game, they have a real chance reaching the finals.

Yup.

Swiss have that canadian style team play.

No superstars but the get quick passes going and are tenacious.

Theyre great skaters which helps a lot.

I respect the russians a lot, but I feel like they would be a better fit for us than the swiss.
