    Not a lot of eligible returnees from this years squad:

    Forwards
    Isak Lundeström
    Fabian Zetterlund

    Defenders

    Rasmus Dahlin
    Erik Brännström
    Timothy Liljegren

    Goaltenders
    Olle Eriksson-Ek

    I give about 0.01% chance of Dahlin being allowed to play next year, and most likely we are not seeing the other two defenders returning either. Will probably be a whole new team next year. Adam Boqvist and Isak Lundeström will be key players.

    If they are all available:

    Hållander - Olofsson - Elvenes
    Bemström - Lundeström - Zetterlund
    Höglander - Gustafsson - Berggren
    Lycksell - Bäck - Svenningsson

    Boqvist - Dahlin
    Liljegren - Brännström
    Lundkvist - Walfridsson
    Westerlund

    I'm sure the actual team will look nothing like this though.

    Lots to choose from, hard to guess which guys will make the team this far out.

    As for the returness I think Brännström is fairly like to return, I'd give Liljegren a 50/50 chance. It would be a shock if Dahlin was made available.

    I think a top4 D consisting of Brännström, Liljegren, Sandin and Boqvist would be really solid. I guess Westerlund and 2 other guys would fill out the D. Lots of guys fighting for spots there.

    The forward group will be pretty meh in terms of star quality but should have some solid depth again next year. Hopefully guys like Olofsson, Lundeström and Hållander can progress nicely.

    Is Calle Sjalin eligible next year? And if so, does he have a good shot to make it?

    He should be on the radar along with a ton of others.

    Do any of you guys really think Dahlin will be available? I dont think Liljegren will be available either, and maybe not Brännström either.

    Watched some of the U18 camp scrimmages. Höglander will be next years Fjällby/Söderlund, his speed and intensity level is outrageous.

    Dahlin - very unlikely. The other two will likely be available.

    What are the chances that we get to see the swedish Ovechkin next year? :D

    I'd say about as likely as we get to see Dahlin, but it's an interesting thought. We'll likely lack gamebreakers too.

    A Brannstrom-Liljegren pairing, with both in their D+2 years, could be the best in the tournament.

    Other than that, not much to be excited about, though much can change in one year's time. Dahlin will not be there folks.

    Would love to see Holtz but we will likely not see him until 2020.

    Outside of the holy 4 we got so many good defenders:

    Rasmus Sandin
    Tom Hedberg
    Jacob Ragnarsson
    Filip Johansson
    Nils Lundqvist
    Adam Ginning
    Victor Berglund
    Calle Själin
    Filip Westerlund

    Insane amount of good D-mans.

    Wild cards among Forwards:

    Oscar Pentler. 7 points in 34 games with Almtuna.

    Jacob Peterson. Frölunda guy who was loaned to Björklöven and had 7 points in 15 games with them.

    Eric Aterius. 4 points in 8 games with Leksand. Come out of nowhere and is already a fan-favorite with his speedy gritty style.

    Hugo Leufvenius. Very big. Putting up alot of points in OHL.

    Richard Hugg. Was considered a super-talent before this season. Did struggle in OHL but might find his touch again.

    Olofsson, Elvenes, Hållander, Lundeström, Boqvist could be good ones as well. Berggren is fairly untested at senior level but he has been good in superelit. It will be a decent year.

    There is even more, like Björnfot, Söderström, Johansson, but yeah no shortage of good d even without Dahlin, even if Dahlin would ofc standout in the unlikely event that he would play.

    Dahlin - Boqvist
    Brännström - Liljegren
    Ragnarsson - Ginning
    Lundkvist

    Eriksson Ek

    Should be a gold-candidate. If Dahlin is not on the team is not end of world with the dmans we have.

    Just because i think there is better players available. Don't get me wrong, i like him. But on the ice he is all over the place, and not in a good way.

    Is that a joke? Okay, fine the coach or federation but why punish players further that have already shown remorse and apologized.
