Sweden has dumped its wealth tax, I believe, so the huge disincentive for players to move back has been removed. (Sweden used to have a 1% annual tax on your entire net worth above a certain point, which virtually guaranteed that any high income athletes, entertainers, etc. moved out.) Still, Swedish tax rates are considerably higher than Canada's, which has to be a consideration. My bet is that he stays here, and spends a good chunk of each summer back in Sweden.
