A long, long time. But just like the players on the Canadian team, they play on various club teams. Shouldn't be an excuse though. How many big hits did I see Canada throw yesterday? Hardly any. How many times did I see the Canadians try to be cute with the puck? Enough than I care to remember. The Swiss play a smart game and that's in result due to their head coach. If the Canadians played the same game the Swiss did, they would have won in regulation and probably by 2 or more goals.
