For those who are on the fence, do not forget Gradin for Vancouver, PPG player for three seasons (I do not think you have forgotten Näslund). On the downside, Vancouver had Anders "Blueline slapshot" Eldebrink but it did not work out (my favorite player when I grow up). With some patience he would have been elite in the NHL, no doubt.
Yep Vancouver can go #2, Lidstrom tipped the scales in favour of Detroit for me.

Canucks have probably been more reliant on European talent than any other NHL team.

If you're making a team top 10 then Bure, the two Sedins, Naslund, Ohlund, and Gradin make it. Perhaps Lumme or Salo too.

Right now it's Detroit followed by Vancouver and Toronto. Ottawa will be up there pretty soon.

It's Detroit, then I guess Vancouver.

I think the Rangers should be up there, even now. Though, they could improve pretty soon. They have 2 pretty highly touted Swedish prospects waiting in the wings. Both can play next season (though probably not from game 1). One is Oscar Lindberg who projects to be a 3rd line defensive center, with good offensive ability. Also Jesper Fasth, a guy that can be a pretty good top 6 winger (he's been compared to Hagelin with better offensive skill).

Detroit is the most successful team with Swede's, of all teams in the world. Including Swedish NT.

If the WHA-era of NHL teams were taken into account, Winnipeg would make a pretty good case for 2nd after Detroit.

A. Nilsson, R. Nilsson, Hedberg, Sjoberg, Lindstrom, Steen, Olausson...

The difference is Vancouver's Swedes are arguably there 3 best players.

Salming with Sundin is what makes their case, but it is nowhere better than Detroit and then Vancouver. What the Sens got going now probably gives them a third spot.
