"Landeskog in – then written history."
"of BRATISLAVA. Gabriel Landeskog are on their way to the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Bratislava, if he passes the medical examination in Colorado."
"It also means that it can be written Swedish hockeyhistoria."
"A world CUP without players from the SHL."
"– There is a SHL player, which is very good, but our job is to take out the best team, " said head coach Rikard Grönborg."
"Grönborg is on track to beat several records here in the world CUP."
"Will named captain and goalkeeper Jacob Markström will be notified he has 21 NHL-player in the squad."
"It has never been more and the record at 20 from the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Copenhagen last year smokes."
"But the issue is whether the SHL will be without players for the first time. If the domestic CUP player is a dying art."
"When John Klingberg lands may Linköpingsbacken Lukas Bengtsson go home. Then there are only two players left here in Bratislava, that are not yet notified – KHL-backen Philip Holm and the last SHL-player Joakim Nygård from Färjestad"
"And will Gabriel Landeskog has Grönborg just left a place in the squad and then the question is if he chooses to sign an eighth back or 15th forward."
"That decision will take."
"”The best are in the NHL”"
"But while the former national team coach Pär Mårts cared for their ”culture” from the SHL, who participated in the Three Crowns the whole season, has Grönborg gone all-in on the NHL track."
"– Yes, we think that the best players are in the NHL, and no one questioned it after the last two years, " says Grönborg and leaning against the two straight world CHAMPIONSHIPS."
" Our job is to take out the best team and we need to take early decision on NHL players, when we begin the journey in the beginning of april. And we have asked an NHL player, we must sign him. Such are the rules."
"But there could be too many NHL players in a world CUP squad?"
"– the Answer is no. I think history has proved it."
"There was a time when all the Swedish world CUP players came from the SHL. Yes, and with the allsvenskan as Bengt-Åke Gustafsson guldåret in 1987 when he had returned home to Karlskoga."
"A selection that was Leif Boork – who else? – to go in the ceiling and call into question the Tommy Sandlins decision to take out a player from the teams."
"But the world CUP-the success in Vienna and quickly took Bengt-Åke back to the Washington Capitals and the NHL again."
"”Purveyor to the NHL”"
"Now live Swedish hockey in a different reality and SHL, which was once called the world's best league outside the NHL can no longer compete for world CUP places. Sad, but true."
" No, I think that the swedes are in the NHL are there for a reason. And it is the world's best league. So the fewer SHL-player depends a bit on how you measure. SHL has been a purveyor to the NHL. It is a good score. And when the NHL players set up as they do right now, it does not feel very strange."
"The proposed tredjemålvakten Jhonas Enroth is the only notified the world CUP-the player who played in the SHL in the winter. But then he spent the greater part of the winter and played 52 matches in Dinamo Minsk in the KHL, so weigh it over from the twelve he could play in milwaukee."
