That simply isn't true.
They develop their skills, as can be evidenced from the number of Swedish players in the NHL that have played in the SEL(I'm stubborn).
Statistically it isn't any fun for HF posters to follow them and brag of their accomplishments to other fanbases but they are developing nonetheless. I think that Swedish teams can be a little conservative at times in their handling of young players but it seems to work.....just not as statistically obvious to those who don't get to see them regularly.
I also think you would have a difficult time in finding corroborating stories of "being treated like scum" from top Swedish prospects.
