The salarys in Sweden are not public so its mostly educated speculation, but there are roumors that Jan Hlavac (or was it Hlinka) had a salary on almost 750k USD, but most starplayers have around 200 000-350 000 SEK per month (around 550 000 USD for the whole year). So my guess is he wouldn't get anywhere near 1,25M in Sweden.

A league minimum (on a one way contract) is worth percieveble more than pretty much any contract in Sweden.
I take your word on it. I heard there were offers and assumed they'd have the financial incentive to make it worth leaving the NHL otherwise they wouldn't have bothered.
