Swedish players in the 2004-2009 drafts, an overview

I thought I'd take a closer look at swedish players in some recent drafts. It soon became a rather long list, so I'm not 100% sure it's entirely accurate and complete. Hopefully some new knowledge can be found from this (that Detroit often drafts swedes doesn't count, everyone knows that already).

Notes:

- Aside from Detroit, St. Louis, NY Islanders and Edmonton have drafted swedish players between 2004 and 2008.
- Columbus and Minnesota didn't draft any swedes between 2004 and 2008, but both selected one swedish player in 2009.
- No swedish netminders were selected in 2005, but otherwise at least two goalies have been selected in each of these drafts.

Very interesting. More than 30% of Swedes go to the Central Division clubs of Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago and Nashville.

Ottawa has drastically changed it's drafting staff and habits so I would expect us to continue the trend of drafting highend swedes.
