Goaltending Development - Swedish Style

At the time I was in Finland instructing and learning how to instruct in their system.  Since then a few articles have surfaced discussing the Swedish system of developing goaltenders.  The Finns view the Swedes as the country most likely to overtake them as the leading developer of goaltenders.

What is the Swedish Recipe for goaltending development.?  The two links below will reveal their secret ingredients.
