Yes ! Bergen is my hometown, but i have lived and worked in Sweden for +15 years and are married to a swede! The company i work with are sponsors to a sel team in north and i have met a lot of sel players and leaders due sponsor happenings and other hockey events in Sweden.

I have followed Swedish hockey for 20 years and there have been a great improvement in their develop program last 5-6 years, the problem are that swedish hockey prospect leave way to early(before they have return something) and the sel teams hasnt been payed enough so they can replace their prospects with a decent player(to keep the high level) elsewhere and so that they can afford to keep their youth programs, the new Nhl agreement is a step in right direction.
