I don't follow that, but what were most of the players' status that decided to join the ranks of a CHL team? No top league in their respective country were interested in them? If your interest is really to play in the NHL, what do you choose? The "shot" of playing in the SEL which, again, should mean a 4th line use, or the possibility of playing a top 2 line role in a CHL team? In Collberg's point of view, it's clear, he has a spot. And chances are he'll have a very important spot. But not in Nystrom might be.
