Kahnberg was among the best players in Sweden during the regular season winning the league in scoring.

This line has though been invisible in the pre-games for WC, especially Kahnberg hasn't done anything.
Nordgren brings a lot of energy to the game, but his status on the team is also uncertain. Their participation is much depended on which NHLers that will be avaliable for Sweden. I personally want them both on the team, as they bring good things to the game. This current team lacks of offensive players, a game both this players bring.
Thanks for the update! I think all of us here would like to see both these guys in the next training camp, we need more quality forwards. It would great even if they came and played on the 3rd-4th lines - we could use better depth. Thanks again!
