GDT Canada vs Switzerland 10AM Dec 29 TSN


Recommended Posts

Swiss always play the closest to Canada's style. Could be all the Canadian coaches they have had in the past. But they hit like us, fight for the puck along the boards as relentlessly, and also in this case also have great goaltending. The only one advantage for Canada has always been the talent level of a few elite players which Switzerland doesn't have. But if they don't stand out, its an even match.

The Swiss just continue to get more and more impressive.

Saw them a few years ago in the WJC in Saskatoon in a game Canada won 5-0, but the Swiss had clearly closed a large part of the gap at that point.  They could skate with Canada and could handle the physicality, but didn't quite have the depth of stick skills and upside. 

Clearly a nation you can no longer take lightly.
