Galchenyuk is American the way Courturier is American. Both were born in the US, but raised mainly outside of the US. And I never said all Swedes are busts or that they can't make it in the NHL. (What is it with strawmen?) It's just that the Devils have a very poor record when it comes to drafting Swedes. (BTW, you forgot to mention Bergfors). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
Swedes usually are a safe bet to draft. Even JD once said years ago that when in doubt, draft a swede. However the Devils just find a way of drafting I guess the "wrong" ones and we get stuck with the ones that we have. Larsson is probably the most promising. Josefson has not impressed that much so far, but still has a chance. However Tedenby is a bust and Bergfors turned out to be one as well.
