A Swedish court ruled that the teams could sign locked out NHLers but the SEL then appealed so it appears the issue is still not completely decided. I find it odd that the teams are ok with it but the league itself isn't. In the meantime, while the SEL waits for their appeal to be heard, it looks like Steen and others will start playing soon.

@TheFourthPeriod: Winnipeg's Tobias Enstrom and St. Louis' Alexander Steen have jumped on with Modo of the SEL & are expected to make their debuts on Tuesday.
