It's sad to see him leave the NHL, but I think he could play a bigger role with an SEL team.
Part of being a hockey player. Suck it up.

Pahlsson must've figured that the looming lockout presented an opportunity to play in europe, whether he wanted to or not. So why not jump the gun and play his last days in Modo? Esp. when fellow Swedes in the NHL will likely be joining him. Cheers.
