I would say it is only Erik Karlsson of those born '90 and later that could be safely regarded as lock. However, I would say half of our D core will probably be born '90 and later.

Should our young D develop as expected the Olympic team has the potential to feature one of the best, if not the best Swedish D cores ever assembled.

Kronwall, Enström, Edler, Karlsson, Hedman, Ekman-Larsson, Larsson, Hjalmarsson, Ericsson, Tallinder, Grossmann, Brodin, Erixon, Rundblad, Ekholm, Lindholm...
