Playing a full year with the men in NLA surely beats an insecure spot in allsvenskan or SEL or playing in CHL with juniors. Even Nicklas Jensen was benched in AIK. I'm sure Nikolaj Ehlers thought about that when he chose Biel.
There is no doubting they must have offered him a good contract. And I have to admit it's exiting to have a dane in the NLA I was of the impression it was defensively strong league, so maybe he can learn some good D aswell
