It's not like he can drive home to Sweden after home games in Washington but can't if he's playing in Edmonton.
Take a look at a map and you'll discover that Washington DC is quite a bit closer to Sweden than Alberta. And there are direct flights--several times a day from DC as well. How many direct flights from Edmonton to Stockholm are there?

Edit: just checked the Trade Rumors board and discovered that Nylander never said anything about flying home--rather he said, it was easier for friends and family to come visit during the season (plus, winters in DC are much less cold and snowy)
