I must say that dureing WC 2007 I was extremley dissapointed in this Ovechkin kid. No way he can make impact in NHL.

No, it's not like that. Niederreiter didn't play really good, but he had his moments, Josi was solid but not really outstanding. But you really regoniced when they were on the ice. Zuccarello was just average at best on a weak team. And it's not like they played a powerhouse in hockey...

It's just my opinion and it would be nice if he'll make it to the NHL, but I just don't see it.

It's just an exhibition game. MZA was pretty good at the Olympics, especially against Switzerland.

I agree ... Niederreiter didn't realy play that much above the others. In fact he even played a bit dangerously sometimes. But i guess it is fine to carry him for the sake of the future and for his future. He still had an amazing move. Brilliant when he slalomed between 3 Norwegians and 17 years old ! putain ! he is powerfull for his age. Yet he is still a bit out of sync with the rest of the team.

Monnet, Duca, Seger, Ambuhl and Gerber were good. Hopefully Stephan can play with the same quality he plays with Servette ... but each time i see him (not playing for Servette) ... i have doubts ... he doesn't reasure me. (Vauclair saved him a goal !) Josi was ok, he builds a good game yet he wasn't the snipper he could have been.

MZA and Thoresen were average in a weak team, Tollefsen the same and Grotnes was the shadow of what he was in the olympics.

It's never good to judge a player on just one (even a little more) game. You can have a better opinion if you can see a whole of Norway games.

Here are the lines against Latvia.

Brunner-Ambühl-Monnet
Lemm-Plüss-Rüthemann
Niederreiter-Savary-Déruns
Jenni-Romy-Duca

Seger-Vauclair
Du Bois-Josi
Hirschi-Bezina

Gerber
Tobias

Helbing and Geering reserved in case of injury.

Switzerland will play its first game against Latvia with twelve attackers and seven defenders as Sean Simpson announced it after practice Friday afternoon. The coach did not complete a list of twenty-three names (the maximum allowed for the first phase) to commence the preliminary round.

So Back, Christen and Trachsler are not nominated.

Simpson has not decided wheter Patrick Geering or Timo Helbling will be defender nr. 7 and he also didn't decide yet if Martin Gerber or Tobias Stephan will start according to TSR.

Will this game be televised or will there be a feed on the net? I am huge Tobias Stephan fan ever since my team Dallas drafted him in 2002. Anyone know if he will start?

Any particular reason why both Sbisa and Streit have opted out of the tournament?

I haven't heard anything so I'm curious.

Sbisa wasn't allowed to go by the Ducks. Streit said he's too tired.

No decision has been made on the goalie but I think it will be Martin Gerber to start. But Stephan will surely get a start.

Martin Gerber to start vs. Latvia. I think this is the right decision.

I would take Geering over Helbling any day of the week. The only thing Helbling has going for himself is his size, but otherwise he's simply not good enough. On the other hand, Geering's play in the Euro League and against the Blackhawks were impressive, especially considering his age. I think he would do quite well in the WC.

PS: Thank God they sent home Back!

It should be on the swiss channels ... that you can also see on Zattoo. ... zattoo.com

I believe that if the game is serious ... Gerber will start. Unless Gerber plays badly or nothing more is at stake, he should remain in the net.

Stephan had an outstanding season and playoff ... but when Gerber is in good shape, he is the king and no other goalie can reach his knees. (my view)

If Gerber plays well vs. Latvia and gets the start vs. Italia I think it's quite possible that Stephan gets the start vs. Canada.

Hopefully Switzerland does well without Streit, Sbisa, Hiller and Weber.

Bezina is worrying me...when Bezina has the puck, he look completely lost...trying to score a goal by shooting the puck after the red line was an absolute awful play by Bezina....it's a shame that only his experience allow him to be selected in the national team.

Timo Helbling should not have been selected...he's the weakest player in the team...

Don't understand why Simpson let Helbing play and doesn't replace him with Geering instead...

Is Thomas Deruns really 6'7" 167 pounds like his hockeydb profile says? That can't be right.

I'm curious as to what the injury is. Is it the nagging groin injury that had or something new that he picked up in the WHL playoffs?

I didn't read anything about sbisa's injury. I read that it wasn't too heavy but the Ducks wanted to send him to the AHL-playoffs somewhere.

I don't think Bezina was that bad, he played a solid game. Helbling was much much weaker.

I'd like to see some sort of special PP-team with Ambühl (or another player who shoots on the right side) and Josi on the blueline and Plüss, Rüthemann and perhaps Brunner (or Déruns). The normal lines just didn't work vs. Latvia.

Gerber will also start vs. Italia, I guess Stephan will get a try vs. Canada.

Sbisa broke a finger I believe in the first round of the WHL playoffs. At the time, they said he would need surgery at the end of the season.

shows up on that injury report but I can't find the article that described surgery

Yes and no, if you followed his path last few years.

No, because he is one of the most talented offensiv winger ever coming out of switzerland. and yes, because he's internationally unproven (and still is against north american grit), never played junior championships (neither u-18 nor u-20), and is physically not really a force, yet.

he's my favourite winger out of switzerland since i've seen him play first time.

He was .... but refused.

Many refused because they felt tired !
like many other teams ... maybe 20% of the "A" roster is present.
Actually it is a great opportunity for others to show up.
