Oh indeed. Still managed to get 66 points for the Leafs in 05-06 though, so a player like him could obviously find some form of effectiveness in the post-obstruction NHL.

edit: Maybe Erixon wasn't going to turn UFA, I don't remember. Either way, Calgary traded him away so they at least received something back. Schultz was a UFA, something that Kristo won't have the opportunity to take advantage of.
Erixon would have re-entered the draft had he not been traded to the Rangers. His situation is one that will not repeat itself though as NHL clubs now hold the rights to Swedish based players for 4 years instead of the previous 2 years.
