Thing is that he earned his hype in international competition like WC's when he scored 6 goals in 9 games in 2008 I believe. I don't know what happened to him in North America, numbers of shots I see look just weird.
Sometimes it's just that on the smaller ice the scoring chances differ from those you get in Europe. Not only that, but the style of game they play in Sweden is very different from the North American style. His shot might not have been any more effective than it is now, maybe he just got scoring chances where his shot didn't need to be that great.
