Umm... I've never seen or heard anyone suggest this. As far as I've understood, the general consensus is that he'll share the starting duties fairly evenly with Andreas Hadelöv in Skellefteå.

As for our goalies for the WC, we of course hope for the Rangers to be out of the picture as usual, but from the SEL I think Daniel Larsson is the most likely starter, maybe Johan Holmqvist will have a bounce back season. Then we have Stefan Liv in the KHL and a few others who are probably ahead of Eriksson as well. Of course he could have a really big breakthrough season, but at the moment I don't think anyone is really considering him for the WC squad.
