Correct, there would have been something worked out if BOTH sides thought it was appropriate at that point in his development. However, it is obvious that Patric felt it best to get the extra year of development in Sweden instead of possibily bouncing between Nashville and Milwaukee for a while.

As was mentioned above, I think that the increased checking pressure Hornqvist has faced this season and that fact that he has overcome this adversity to excel once again will really ease his transition to the NHL next season and I have no doubt that he will be given a shot in training camp to win the job on Legwand's wing.
