Hockey in SHL is very civilized compared to AHL, teams fly to their games, big training staffs, doctors etc, good salary, friends, family, language... He is a top prospect for NHL which means he would easily play an important role in SHL. KH had him in AHL (even though all DRW centers are injured) which is the opposite of what he is used to and he is playing for scraps... Riding buses wont make him a better player and AHL got a really dodgy reputation in Sweden so dont fool yourself thinking he was dreaming about playing there.
Doesn't the NHL and SHL have an agreement on contracts therefore he would need to finish his out next year?
