    Interesting thing about Conz, he was eligible to be drafted in 2009 and 2010 and nobody drafted him. Can't he just be signed by anyone now?

    I say:
    - Bärtschi a late 1st round 1 or a 2nd round.
    - Hoffman 3rd round
    -Pestoni and Conz maybe in a late round, but i think they are too small to get drafted.

    If Conz wasn't picked after last year it isn't going to happen now, barring a 50+ shot domination against Canada and the USA on the road to a medal.

    None of them impressed me against Finland.

    If you think that Bartshi won't get drafted then someone had too much Koskenkorva Viina on New Years. :naughty:

    Bärtschi is a lock, Hofmann is also quite probable. I'm unsure on Pestoni and Conz, maybe a late round. I'd use a late pick for Conz.

    Perhaps Schlumpf and/or Truttmann could also be taken in a late round.

    -Bärtschi for sure, 1st round.
    -Hoffman, I expect him to be picked in a late round
    -Pestoni, 3/4th round perhaps
    -Conz, late pick, somebody's gotta take a gamble on this kid.

    I'd be shocked if nobody took a chance on Conz. "Game stealer"

    I understand you but Finland played very well and The Swiss had a day off !

    they are worth more than what they showed against the Fins some days ago.

    I'm sorry but at HFBoards there's no such things as "day off". A team/players is/are only good the first/last/only time you see it/them.

    Bartschi for sure in the first round
    Hoffman and Pestoni should be taking
    Conz could get drafted late round. He has been having a great season in the NLA and if he could have another solid game Sunday then I think a team would take him.
    Schlumpf also looked good

    Bartschi is getting drafted in the first round of the draft, whether you think so or not.

    Bartschi and Hofmann will be drafted. I doubt anyone takes a flyer on Conz, but it could happen in the 6th or 7th. Schlumpf could also go in the 6th or 7th.

    I say this will be the year where the most Swiss players will get drafted. And also, the first time I think that a Swiss player will get drafted in the 1st round in back to back draft years.

    Conz hasn;t been as dominant this world jr as he was last year, although he showed some of that form last night against the americans.

    I'm a bit suprised to hear nobody used a late pick to get him, but he is a bit on the small side in an era where the goalies just keep getting bigger.

    The TSN guys also made a point about the lack success that previously hyped swiss goalies have had in the nhl. For every Jonas Hiller, there has also been a David Aebischer, and Martin Gerber who didn't last very long in the nhl.

    I say:

    Bärtschi late 1st round
    Hofmann 6th round
    Schlumpf 7th round

    Pestoni, Conz, Truttman or Schäppi will not be in the plans of the 30 nhl clubs...
