Yeah, I see your point, and I agree. I think we need to give them some time though, for example Tedenby isn't having a great year, but what's to say he won't explode in a couple of years? I could definitely see it. The potential for all these kids is there, they just need to get into the right mindset, take nothing for granted, and I think the social situation plays a big part as well. Thankfully there's still a couple more years until the next olympics, and I think we'll see a lot of difference in our internal national rankings of players between now and then.
