Lets see things for what they are. Out of the 24 swedes that was drafted in 2009, over half (13) of them has allready played a NHL-game. That's actually crazy numbers. It's allready the draft from which most swedes actually made it to a NHL-game all-times with a margin.

When talking about a golden generation though, you got to remember that all is not gold that glitters. Not every single hyped up prospects makes it in the longrun or forfills his potential. I am just happy if there comes out a couple of impact-players from these good agegroups.
