I wouldn't worry about it. A lot of these are judgment calls by the staff.
A chunk of the guys on the guys on the "A" team (OEL, Rundblad, Erixson, Larsson) are in fact better than Bertilsson. The rest are debatable. On top of that there are things like team needs to consider, for instance, does someone offer something Bertilsson lacks while the team having Bertilsson may be redundant?
None of this means he isn't good or that he hasn't been performing well in the SEL.
Did he deserve the "A" team? I think so, but that's not my call.
