So a few swedes wouldn't get a spot, but the level of play would increase immensly which equals better development for the swedes playing in Superelit.

The problem for Czech rep. and Slovakia is somewhat linked to their national junior leagues being drained of talent, with all the best leaving for CHL. This leaves a depleted league which doesn't challenge the remaining players enough. Which is good for Canada and bad for Czech rep. and slovakia in my opinion.
No one's complaining besides Don Cherry.... and you know what he's like.
