    In all seriousness Soderberg can't make his own decisions? What is this? Nazi Germany?

    The NHL can't tell the Swiss league to kick rocks and let him play?

    It has nothing to do with the SEL, and I can't even completely fault the SIHA. It was the IIHF that gave them this veto power.

    An English confirmation
    @TSNBobMcKenzie: As per @steffeG and NHL/Boston sources, Swedish Ice Hockey Federation trying to block Carl Soderberg from joining Bruins. Stay tuned.

    Red, how can you not fault them for stopping a Swedish citizen from earning more money in a better league?

    I said not completely. It was the IIHF that gave them this ability in the first place. As such they share culpability.

    I'm also going to put some fault on PC and Jacobs. Had they not just negotiated a release but had in addition bought out his contract from Linkopings, Sweden couldn't have pulled this move.

    Dammit, my gut was telling me this was going to happen.

    Thats what Jim Morrison said. I don't think he knew much about Soderburg though.

     



    I knew he wasn't dead....break on through, man.

    So somone from twitter is reporting that the Sewdish Federation is not going to release the Yeti. Oh ok then it is most certainly confirmed.

    I think she is the same person that tweeted P Diddy was seen kissing Kate Upton last week. I'll wait until PC confirms this then if he does I'm not going to go crazy over it.

    Crazy.  Why wouldn't Yetiberg just tell Sweden that if they block his career in the NHL he won't play in the WC?

    That would seem to solve the problem.  If Sweden wants to screw their countrymen out of opportunities, then they won't represent them.

    Pathetic.

    Sounds like it is still fluid, so who knows at this point?  Not sure what kind of leverage the Bruins or the NHL have in a situation like this.

    That said, he has agreed to a contract with the Bruins, right?   So the Swedish Hockey Federation can block until what point/date?

    So Mckenzie is rewteeting a TV reporters "tweet" that the Swedish Federation is trying to block the move.

    Still waiting for the official, official announcment. You are right though not looking good.

    Again, it seems to me that Soderberg has plenty of leverage, even if the Bruins or the NHL don't.

    Playing in the WC is optional.  All Soderberg has to do is tell them he'll only play after he's allowed to play in the NHL.  Then, what's the point in blocking him?

    Maybe the Bruins go far and he doesn't make it back for the WC, but that's still better than him refusing to be on the team altogether.

    Or just make sure Soderberg has seen this video.

    Does Sweden sanction players that refuse to play for them internationally? I know some countries like Belarus and Kazahkstan do, while others like US and Canada don't. What's Sweden's policy?

    Soderberg will threaten to never play for Sweden again. The NHL can lean on the Swedes too. He's gonna get to BOS.

    My brother is contending this is just a ploy for the SIHA to milk more cash from the Bruins. Sounds plausible.

    I think this will be the precedent Red.

    Any chance Carl fooled around with this reporter, dumped her and she is just trying to stir things up ?
