I think Edler is a lock barring injuries. Even a two game suspension isn't enough to change this. The same goes with N. Kronwall. But things are seldom so rose tinted when the time for selecting the squad is up. Some of the "locks" will not be available, taken injuries or other random stuff. But Sweden has a depth which are only matched by Canada on the D-side (and even centres, it is the wingers depth which is weaker for Sweden) so it feels kind of comfortable not being dependent on player X making it. Take out Karlsson, OEL and Hedman for example and Sweden will still have a good D. NHL-wise.
