It's sad to see him leave the NHL, but I think he could play a bigger role with an SEL team.
Yeah, I think this is the key point. These things are family decisions. Pahlsson already won the cup, been in the NHL for ten years and already recieved the biggest contract he would get a few years ago with Columbus. The family already left their 'NA home' (Anaheim), have been moving around quite a lot the last few years and now that their daughter is a little older, I don't think they would move to a new place yet again. I think it was either going to be Vancouver or back Sweden for them.

Players that has a NA passport.
