I highly doubt that team Sweden was better than Russia, and also I do think that most of Team Russia would have been drafted if they were Swedes. Do you really think that Panarin, Burdasov, Pivtsakin etc are so worse than Swede players not to get any draft consideration? Be serious, you know that Burdasov, Panarin, Pivtsakin, Zaitsev, etc, would have been drafted if they'd come from Sweden.
