I don't think a realistic case can be made for him as the top Swedish player from that era of Islanders history:

Persson:
Stanley Cup champion (1980, 81, 82, 83)
369 points in 622 NHL games (.59 PPG)
Elitserien champion (1976, 77)
World Championship Silver Medal (1977)

Tomas Jonsson:
Stanley Cup champion (1982, 83)
344 points in 552 NHL games (.62 PPG)
Elitserien champion (1979)
World Championship Gold Medal (1991)
Olympic Gold Medal and Triple Gold Club member (1994)
Guldpucken (Elitserien MVP, 1994-1995 season)
