according to Nyström, the Swedish hockey league suffers from the same problems, with many viewers my SM-league to suffer: the game level of the riotous fall in. Columnist found written in two reasons to discount mode.
– One reason is of course the Swedish players mass exodus to foreign leagues. In addition, we have too little players in Finland. Swedish hockey is substandard without Finnish star, who these days do not come to Sweden, Nyström writes.
Please take the text several examples of SHL and its predecessors Elitserien in the history of Finnish staroista. It should be mentioned now, although Marko Jantunen , Jukka Voutilainen , Tom Rock and Raimo Helminen . Text remember how the finns stars brought the team to the level of the well in international terms.
Through the ages a Swedish follow hockey there have been many times absolutely world class, thank you for the Finnish star.
Already the cold numbers tell the truth of the Finnish crop failure. This season in the SHL in play 22 finns, when they, for example, ten years ago was 36. Current SHL-finns are no longer just occupying scoring the top position. The best Finnish point man, Färjestadin Jesse Virtanen , is the scoring until the 19th.
One of the reasons given lazy toon is nyström's paper in the KHL, which will absorb the Finnish peaks in a totally different way with him. Even if the KHL:no start of season 2008-09 and the current KHL's situation is not territorial expansion, and jokers of the accession can not fully be compared, is the difference between ten years ago the numeral immense. Season 2008-09 KHL:, played only eight finns, when they now have 44.
– It is, of course, won the KHL:top - and a big loss SHL, Nyström decide.
