    CARL SODERBERG'S SWEDISH ELITE TEAM ELIMINATED

     A report on NESN  mentions that CARL SODERBERG (whose hockey rights are owned by the Boston Bruins) is now through playing hockey and can come to the U.S. as his team has been eliminated in their latest playoff series. It will now be very interesting to see if he actually comes over to join the Bruins.

    Carl who?

    I'm intrigued.

    How did the Bruins get his rights?

    How did he look when he showed up for training camp?

    Tell us more.

      Carl Soderberg is a Swedish player who was originally drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the mid 2000's and when they were not able to sign him they traded him to the B's around 2007 for goal tender Hannu Toivenen. Since then he has put off signing with the B's as he continued to play in Sweden. This year he has really blossomed over there and put up some big numbers and  apparently has indicated that he was interested in coming over to the N.H.L.  when his team's playoff's were ended. That has just happened so now if everything works out with paperwork etc. we just may see him.   its still a tossup so time will tell.

    I think it's from the lesser known "Slap Shot 7: The Haansen's Search For Carl".

    This is very exciting stuff.  I hope he comes and is a really good player.  Like Antii Laa....nen good.

     Apparently management is pretty excited about him according to what is being quoted  in the news reports.  He has good size and above average skill from what has been written about him. But  and its a big but the paperwork needs to be done for it to happen. However this is the closest  the 2  sides (Soderberg and the B's) seem to have been since this started. Something to look foreward to and if it happens it could not be a better time with the plsayoffs a month away.

    You didn't hear anything in Panama?  I thought maybe he was one of those secrets that the whole world knew, but our governments in North America kept from us.

    I'm surprised that I didn't. With the canal here, you'd figure that with everything and everybody coming through Panama, someone would have said something. 

    Something fishy with all this secrecy around him.

    There have been stories about him off and on since the B's traded for him in @007.  There have been reports about him attributed to NESN and ABC NEWS this past week. All you have to do is go to those sources and you should come up with  the reports.  Even Darren Dreger who writes on TSN had a report on him earlier this year.

    Okay, fellas.  Shortpops is really trying to be helpful here. 

    Shortpops:

    We've had a few discussions about Soderberg over the years here, most recently over the last month or so.  We've also discussed him just about every training came since Toivonen went west.  He never comes here, so the joke it that many of us aren't 100% sure he even exists.  I think it was SanDog, in a rare bout of comedy, that named him Yetiberg.

    We apprecaite your info here.  Be sure to check out some of the other threads on Soderberg to find out what others have to say about him.

     He is elusive and I  think he was afraid of getting buried in the ahl and  then taking years to actually get to the nhl. Its a real strange story and  almost seems unreal at times.  But apparently the B's are working hard to make it happen asap.

    He also had a bad eye injury several years ago when he was still a promising prospect with STL and is a dentist by trade so money is not a big issue with him. Can't fault him for doing what he thinks is in his best interests.

    THe whole thing with the latest flap over this is that a report came out that he was almost surely coming this time as he had achieved  a high enough level of play that he thought he could really make a big splash in the nhl now and would come when the  Swedish playoffs were over.  So at age 27   all 6 feet 3 inches and 200 plus pounds of him would finally make an appearance with the B's but if it doesn't happen it won't be a shocker.
