TBH I think it is perfectly fine reacting against Edler, same as there were reactions against Getzlaf last WC. What I don't like is when this becomes a SWE-supporter vs. CAN-supporter issue.
Its all good. But the reality whether you or I like it is there tends to be such perspectives and on both sides and that go beyond even present generations. Thats what I'm trying to convey. For instance how many times when you were a kid would you hear about "Canadian players" in a negative context before you had even developed your *own perspective*.

We're all products, in some way, of subtle, or overt generalization inputs. Even perpetuating them as I have done for point of illustration.
