How should that happen? They've caught up a bit lately, but those kinda statements are very naive. Have you once watched their domestic leagues? They didn't even have a hockey stadium big enough to host the WHC. Denmark doesn't care about hockey, and Latvia is financially a beggar in relation to the big nations. Do you realize that Sweden and Finland each have about 75'000 hockey licenses? Latvia has 6500 and Denmark 4500... Switzerland has built a good foundation for some success over the last decade but even that won't ever get us near Sweden long-term. That being said, we'll win tonight! HOPP SCHWIIZ!!
