Kubalik and led the Swiss league in scoring.
Andreasson is 27th in scoring in Sweden.

Doesn't hurt to sign this guy. But I'm not holding much hope.
I don't know why I thought this is the Swiss league, So I'm just wrong there. Not holding out a ton of hope, but still worth a shot.

Pius Suter sucks.
I wouldn't say he sucks but he's not a 2nd line center. Could be a decent 3rd line center. His production is on par with a 3rd line center...only problem is he got 2nd line minutes to achieve that.

He's kind of soft. I like his shot. Playmaking is so-so. But he seems soft. (Suter)

He’s probably not going to move the needle, but he’s worth a shot.

27th in scoring as a ROOKIE! Also, the SHL is a much better league than the Swiss league

He'll be 24 before the season starts.

SHL may or may not be better than the Swiss league, but I think the top end talent in the Swiss National League is equal, or better.
A recent survey shows the "average" salary in the Swiss A League is $235,000
I highly doubt Sweden or Finland are close to that.

Another year and he'll be old enough to qualify for Calder votes.
