    Swiss have shown me something in this tourney. A quality program. I say they'll beat Austria comfortably: 7-2.

    The Swiss are improving their talent level and getting NO results. This is pitiful. Too much talent to be happy with a blowout loss to Canada and losses to so-so Czech and Finnish teams. They really need to find some heart , and someone who gets results in the clutch. I have been a huge backer of the Swiss and the strides they made but its time they start winning some big games and not just be happy to be there. Pretty awful and not much short of embarrassing. Part of me hopes they get destroyed tomorrow so they will wake the hell up. :madfire:

    Is this definitely the last game for the Swiss?

    They aren't in the Quarterfinals, so I assume it's one consolation game and that's it?

    There was a bitter rivalry - in skiing. But now Switzerland sucks :D.

    Anyways, Austrians will play with heart and full emotion. Lange has shown he is hot. Vanek will be hungry for goals.

    I doubt there will be more than 2 goals difference. Both sides should have a chance to get the win.

    They're supposed to play Sweden as well, but that game won't have a meaning anymore.

    I'm really dissappointed. It seems that Austrian hockey is not able to compete with B-Class nations. I knew that we would have no chance against USA, Russia ... but I thought Switzerland would be in reach.

    I don't think it's realistic to compare the swiss youth program to the
    austrian one yet. Switzerland will face some very tough years, but
    in the last few years they have been miles ahead of the austrian
    youth program. It looks like that might change soon, with Switzerland
    having some bad years (>85) coming. Anything else than a clear
    victory of this swiss team over the austrian team would have been
    a surprise, really.
