Backup? They have shared the work load all year and is one of the reasons they both have looked so fresh in the playoffs. Holmqvist was our numer one going in to the playoffs byt got sick and Svedberg took over. There is no numer one in Brynäs. And both of them has contracts runing through next season. Besides Holmqvist took a big "home town" discount to play with Brynäs this season. His contract is not all that big. And Brynäs in not exactly short on money these days either. They have the third highest salary budget in the league if i remember correctly.

Johan Holmqvist, regular season, games played: 28
Niklas Svedberg, regular season, games played: 29
Johan Holmqvist, playoffs, games played: 3
Niklas Svedberg, playoffs, games played: 9
