If you go on the WC subforum on HF, a lot of posters who have knowledge of the SEL say Larsson would be the 3rd or 4th dman on their team. I'd hope the Swedish federation wouldn't keep him off based on something so petty. Although, I could see this lighting a fire under Larsson's ass
So despite the fact that we know players have been punished for leaving Sweden as juniors you know for a fact Larsson isn't getting punished for the same thing the first time the country has a chance to do so? I don't buy it.
I did say he would be on the team if he was enormously better than the other players, but since he isn't they get to extract their punishment without hurting their own team.
We know they've punished players in the past to teach future players a lesson, so this would just be a continuation of a policy we already know has been put in place.
