the French ”Swedish” mittnia Kentin Mahé may have a great role in the world CUP because it looks as if Nikola Karabatic will miss the championship due to injury. Mahé plays in Hungarian Veszprem, has a Swedish grandmother and can speak a little Swedish.
the Brothers Dujshebaev, big brother Axel, and brother Daniel, both play in the Spanish national team. They also play together in the Polish club Kielce, coached by their dad's Talent, once storstjärna in Barcelona.
Sweden has the world's best målvaktspar in Andreas Palicka and Mikael Appelgren. The two parts also on the målvaktsjobbet in the German side Rhein-Neckar Löwen and also have the best the goalie stats in the Bundesliga, Palicka at 38 per cent and Appelgren at 37 per cent.

the Swedish niometerslinjen with the asian name Kim–Jim–Kim work? The names Kim Ekdahl du Rietz–Jim Gottfridsson–Kim Andersson should get motståndarförsvaren to tremble, but the question is whether ”Kimmarna” lost some of the focus forward during the bortavaron from the national team.
the wingers moved into one of the kamikazepiloter when the full force of the plunging into the crease and face a tvåmetersbjässe in the case. Always fascinating to see how they find the holes or how the with the precision of ”curls” in the balls with the help of incredible screws.
