I think that he's trying to say that a Finn doesn't count as a
player in Sweden. In Finland teams are allowed to have 5 foreigners in their roster (well, teams can have 15 foreigners in their roster, but only 5 are allowed to play at the same time) no matter what if the player is from Latvia, Sweden, or Canada.
If I've understood right, in Sweden teams are allowed to have a certain number of non-EU players, but there aren't restrictions to the players who are from countries that belong to the EU. (ie. Malmö could be full of Danish players, but TPS can only have five Danes).
My english isn't very good, but I hope that you got the point.
