That's sort of true but it doesn't explain why the coach would want players who aren't as good as Kronwall or Fernholm.
Someone like Oduya for example. Sweden's first goon.
I'm more suprised DIF playes Rickard Franzen and Ronnie Petterson over Kronwall and Fernhom actually. Because Fernholm/Kronwall are younger it doesn't mean there worse players. All this with Sweden and young players are screwed up.
Johnny Oduya is the one who plays for Djurgården and Team Sweden, his older brother Fredrik retired after 1999/00 but is now back playing in the swedish Tier 3.
That's correct. Fredrik played a few seasons in the AHL and IHL. He never experienced NHL hockey though. If Johnny is a goon, that's nothing compared to his older brother who sometimes was described as a maniac on the ice. There is also a third brother called Muno.
