    I'm surprised that Delemont isn't good enough. I think I have seen him ranked to be drafted in the 2nd round next year at best and always being one of the top Swiss guys to be drafted. With Rochette I wasn't sure if it was certain yet that he has chosen Canada over Switzerland. I mean it's very unlikely that he gets to represent Canada in a best on best tournament maybe ever but would more likely make the Swiss roster.

    Yeah i think rochette will hopefully play for us again at mans level because Canadas team is exremly hard to make in comparison to the swiss one. And i have heard that delemont is playing terrible in the qmjhl but i cant tell i have never seen him play in the qmjhl

    I hope Fischer is still coach then and he doesn't invite him. If Malgin is punished for some minor thing then refusing to play for country you were born in and learned everything about hockey should be automatic ban from NT forever.

    He's 17, that's a tough decision to take, I wouldn't blame him too much for that. And Fischer won't too, as long as he's fully commited to what he's doing.

    If Malgin gets shafted for two years because he didn't attend some meaningless prospect tournament then there need to be some repercussions in Rochettes case as well. You talk about commitment, Rochette activley contacted Hockey Canada and gave them a long time commitment to play for them. He did that as soon as he left Switzerland, it was a calculated move. If he hadnt done that the Canadian Federation wouldt have taken him in at all. I also don't like the "he was only 17" argument. Lots of young adults in Switzerland hold Jobs/Aprenticeships at that age, where they are basically treated like adults and hold adult responsibilities. At 17 you have to know that your actions have consequences. If he were a year older and a legal adult we wouldnt even have this conversation. Now Rochette decided to play for Canada wich is his right, but i don't think he should just be welcomed back once he realizes he won't cut it on team Canada and decides to play for Switzerland once again as his backup plan. If that were to happen, it would be a slap in the face for any player who may not have Rochettes talent, but would give anything to represent his country at the WJC or WC.

    I mean I don't know Theo and I don't know why he did that and what his thoughts were and how much his parents were behind this or not. I don't want to judge that. Obviously I'd like to see him now play for Switzerland and I can understand the blame. But there is a lot of space between just coming back and calling him up for every tournament (which I wouldn't do either) and an automatic ban for the rest of his career. I just wanted to say that if he expresses the wish to play for Switzerland again there should be talks and I'm sure Fischer would find a solution which would pay respect to all positive and negative sides of the affair. And I don't think you should call him up immediatly or give him any free pass to each WC or whatever.

    And I really hope there will be talks between Fischer, Malgin and Kukan next summer and that both will play for the team again afterwards.

    Sure I wouldnt go as far as to just ban him for good. But he definitley would have to wait a couple of years so that there is at least some consistency with Fischers other punishment measures...

    Switzerland and Slovakia in one group is a very rare occasion. Might be one of the most interesting games this year

    The Pay-TV channel "MySports" will broadcast all the Swiss matches like last year. Not sure about free tv, maybe SRF (state tv) when it comes to knockout stages.

    Its questionable. True is, the last game was in 2011. But from 2005 until 2011 they played every year a game.
