    It would be closer if you used the top 6 dmen from both countries.

    Dahlin ? Pietro ???

    Are we already putting Dahlin over a guy who has been a top 10 D for almost a decade?

    OEL = Vlasic
    Klingberg ≤ Burns
    Lindholm < Reilly

    When does the U.S enter the picture? They have like 10 guys who are #1s or highend 2s in the NHL. Werenski, Jones, Carlson, Suter, Ghost, McAvoy, Byfuglien, Schmidt, Niskanen, McDonagh, Fowler

    A lotta hope and potential. Not really any right nows. Doughty, Subban, Hedman and Karlsson easily trump every one of those D's so right away they are behind the 8 ball.

    Subban is nowhere near the level of Hedman imo but never less Canada for me as well

    You think all those players are bonafide top pairing defensemen?

    Why do you disagree? Sweden's got too many great defensemen while Dahlin is still young and developing as young D-men take longer to develop.

    Half a year ago Dahlin didn't quite make the top 6 in team Sweden's non-NHL Olympic lineup... now he's suddenly supposed to make their best on best lineup?

    Hedman >> Subban (this really isn't close. Hedman is WAY better)
    Karlsson < Doughty
    OEL = Vlasic
    Klingberg ~< Burns
    Lindholm ~< Rielly
    Ekholm ~ Letang - hard to tell because of Letang. he's capable of being >>>>>>>> but he's been injured.

    And I'm not going to include Dahlin or Pietro.

    this is very close.

    Sweden has really developed some great dmen in recent years.

    Def some better options the Dahlin. Dahlin will be great but he's not there yet.

    I see these defensemen ahead as of now
    Erik Karlsson
    Victor Hedman
    Oliver Ekman-Larsson
    John Klingberg
    Hampus Lindholm
    Matthias Ekholm

    He'd be up against Nicklas Hjalmarsson, Adam Larsson, Oscar Klefbom, Anton Stralman,
    it'd be close

    ------

    As a whole a top pairing of Karlsson - Hedman is too hard to pass upon. Sweden for me.
