The Europeans put an enourmous pressure on our players
This is true, and i dont see why a comment like this would create a problem. I dont see how anyone can deny that the european citizens and media, not neccisarily the team itself, put so much weight on this event, just as us North Americans put so much presssure on our atheletes during the playoffs.

Europeans constantly cry for us NA fans to look at the situation from their end, to see why the olympics are so important to them. That is fine, but don't be hypocritical and look the other way when someone from NA asks you to to the same. Here we care about our NHL teams more than the olympics, its just the way it is. Our way isnt "right" and neither is yours.

When swedish media puts pressure on forsberg to play it is no different than bobby clarke or the american media putting pressure on him not to. Its all about perspective.

in conclusion: chill. he isnt crossing the line with these comments
