I think that's actually a great point. Nearly all of Dallas' Swedes and Finns (oh yeah and one Dane) spent their 18-20 year old seasons in Sweden/Finland.

That's obviously something the team is very comfortable with, and Bystrom going to the OHL would be out of the norm.

Just wondering ... and you might not know this because he's a Swede ... Why did Landeskog go the CHL route? He's one of the higher profile Swedes I can think of who made that jump. A better question I guess would be why did Olli Maatta come to the OHL?
