I was trying to make a point that the swedish federation are hardly in a position to say no to swedish citizens that are actually living here in Sweden. It would damage the pedestrian national teams during the winters a great deal put on top of that no NHL-players are there. It would spark similar reactions to when Bobby Hull amongst a few others was not allowed to play in the first Summit Series. That was in 1972, and no-one could pull a stunt like that today and get away with it. That is besides the civil discrimination charges they could get to face.
