Only one of those has actually made the team yet though, and as great as Karlsson has been this season, he's hardly a well-known name in Sweden. If all of those prospects pan out and Ottawa becomes something of a "Detroit Light", I could see them becoming one of the more popular NHL teams in Sweden but I still think the fact that the Sens come from a city most Swedes know absolutely nothing about will hold them back.
