I agree about the Swede thing. When I think of a Swedish player I think of a good two-way player. I think this has to do with the way their league is set up. Not a Swede, but I remember Frans Nielsen talking about his time in the SEL. He was extremely gifted offensively, but weak on the d-end. Malmo won't give a 17 year old kid top 6 minutes, so if he wanted to play he had to play on the third or fourth line and if you want to play on the third or fourth line you have to be solid in the dzone, as you will probably not be scoring a whole lot.
