Being that i'm from Timrċ, i'll put my vote on Lennart "lill-Strimma" Svedberg (who is from Timrċ also, his jersey hangs in E-ON Arena). He was obviously before my time but Timrċ is a hockeycommunity so i've heard some of the stories.
Lill-Strimma was scary talented, he could've been the first swede in NHL if he wanted to (he rejected Detroit seeing the trip to the states as a paid vacation or something
). Tarasov attended his funeral, he has said that Lill-Strimma was the only foreigner he wanted on his team (CSKA) or something of that nature.
