Switzerland 2022

Team Explanation
There are a lot of qualified players eligible for this team, and seeing as it would hypothetically exist in 2 years it is hard to know who of the older guys might regress, and who of the younger guys might improve enough to make it.

This is a very interesting team that we don't really know all that much about. A lot of the depth players are older guys from the NLA - the Swiss League - with no NHL experience. However, these players are the top from their league, and play every nigh on olympic-sized ice, which does give them an advantage over the NHL players. This is not a particularly strong defence core either. I think Josi alongside Kukan and Seiganthaler will be a decent top 3 defence by this time, but there simply isn't enough skill or depth to contend with the Swedish, Canadian, or American bluelines. This team is going to have to score a lot of goals to win in front of an aging and unproven goaltending duo, but it seems like they may have the ability to do exactly that based on their top 6. The bototm 6 is also surprisingly good, as Suter, Moser, and Andrighetto are some of the better players in their leagues.

These are my picks for the team and the lines, and I welcome any opinions on who you would take instead, but please be respectful. There are a lot of qualified players and I made a lot of decisions based on who I think will get picked, rather than who is necessarily the best.

Scratches are defencemen who are very close to making it.
IR are the forwards who just miss the cut
LTIR are the other goalie options

Noah Rod also makes this team. Swiss are a little short on grinder types and Rod provides an edge in the bottom six that they could really use. He can also put up points if needed.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing, he was my final cut. I just wasn't sure if he had the experience and skill needed to beat out the other bottom 6 guys, but I think I will move him in front of Vermin. He's really the only one I think Rod can beat out here, Hoffmann, Moser, Thurkauf, and Pius Suter have been very good in Europe and would be hard to cut.
