I don't know what kind of an effect this should have on Peter. On one hand, you'd think he'd see his friend make the smart choice and rest his injury because the team that pays him is more important and choose to follow suit. Or, he could see it that Sweden needs his help even more.

Personally, taking Naslund out of the equation makes Sweden much less of a gold medal competitor and so I think it's a big risk of Peter's health to go over and play for 4th (for example). I know there's pride in representing your country, but the goal is to win gold. If he risks his health for a team that doesn't have a chance, I'm pretty upset. I know stranger things have happened, but Naslund is a huge part of that team, I don't see them beating Canada.
