As I understand it he's not going (which I for the record think is a horrible decision seeing what wingers we will field in the WC...). The coach was quoted yesterday as saying that he had drawn the line with regards to adding NHL players to the current team (unless a Zetterberg/Backstrom/Sedin becomes available after the 1st round).
Apparently they were more interested in Lander but since he was going to OKC that was not an option.
SWE might just be fielding the worst team in recent history...
