"He was super cool about it, he completely understood," Gaëtan Haas tells TeleBielingue when asked about Patrick Fischer's reaction to his decision. "I don't want to join the national team if I don't feel 100 %. I do not think that would be right."
The captain of EHC Biel was part of the team that traveled to Beijing this winter for the Olympics. Haas has appeared in four World Championships and two Olympic Games for the Swiss thus far.
