But not ready for NHL primetime. Not yet. He needs a whole preseason camp and lots of action to rev up to fully-realized potential, and he needs to experience the aggression in this league compared to his old one. It's a smaller rink; it's faster and it's more competitive. People are hemming and hawing at Segs being a baby lately and not getting dirty in front of the net or in the corners. Did you SEE the few games Soderberg played for us? Dude got folded over every time it got at all physical. Not good timing at all to bring him in now, during the most important time of the entire season.
Soderberg stepped on the ice basically after landing at Logan hours earlier; it was all new to him; all. He's been here practicing and acclimating himself to everything from A to Z for months now. Different set of circumstances. You could have written the same warning about Krug and it would've made perfect sense, too--until it was actually tried.

Soderberg deserves a shot to be inserted at this point. (That's what she said.)

Pastrnak means "Eurolectric" in Czech. Look it up.
