I thought there was a caveat that allowed us to only do that with 1st round picks... or am I misremembering?

Since Sweden made it 14 teams in SHL the second league Hockeyallsvenskan is not as good as it was when Filip played there.

Som good NHL players though who went from Hockeyallsvenskan to NHL and never played in SHL.

Patrik Berglund St Louis
Mikael Backlund Calgary
Oliver Ekman-Larsson Arizona
Michael Raffl Philadelphia
Filip Forsberg Smashville

Right now the whole world is starting to realize such a great hockey city is Nashville. Such a great team the Predators have
True. Nashville was a team that didnt get much media attention here in Sweden, but this season has changed all that.
We gave you some nice players, but hey Nashville gave us Doug Seegers. Win-win.

This post kind of got me thinking. In North America we hear about "small market" teams, like Nashville for example that don't play in one of the bigger cities and most of the time that results in not many people paying attention to teams like that. Overseas is it not really looked at like that? I guess it would make sense if people in Sweden, for example, just look at us and see "the Predators". They wouldn't see us so much as "Nashville". Maybe that's not necessarily true, I don't know but it would make sense.

I think that's quite true. I can't even place all the teams on a map, not to mention that I'd know anything about all of those places.

I think who plays for a team, how the team has played lately or how popular it is generally (along with lots of other random reasons) matters so much more than where the team is located and the emotional attachment to go with it. When I started to follow Preds it had nothing to do with them being a Nashville team. When I grew to like them it had nothing to do with them being a Nashville team. Now that I consider myself a fan I still don't think it had nothing to do with them being a Nashville team. That being said, learning about the fans, the city, the team and having a good discussions with you folks Nashville has become the first (and so far the only) NA city I've put on my must-visit-list.

I'm not sure about this and the reason I say that is because in 2011 I went to London and they asked where we were from quite often. We would say Tenneseee and the reply back was always "I know where that is....Jack Daniels!"

In 2 interviews I read he said he would go to camp and if he didn't make it he would go back to Sweden. Since he's not a drafted player I don't think we have his exclusive rights since he signed with HV71 before he signed with NSH. Or is that not still an international "no poaching" rule?

As someone who has lived from coast to coast throughout the last 8 years I can say you get a MUCH different reaction by saying you're from Nashville than saying you're from Tennessee

I've yet to find an international location in recent years where saying Nashville doesn't illicit some type of positive reaction. Not sure Tennessee would actually get any kind of response. Might as well say Wyoming.

Yeah that's true and here in Finland the majority that follows the NHL still support Caps, Pens, Wild, Rangers teams that have superstars, are traditional or have a lot of Finns. The media recognizes it too, but the Preds get relatively lot media attention cause of Rinne, Saros, Salomaki and the Swedes. Lately, people are taking the smaller teams and such under their wings a lot more.

But yes, it's not pretty much at all focused on the city the team plays in here.

Ejdsell today was confirmed signing for HV71 (the swedish champions). Not sure what it means for next season though.

A quick translation from the press announcment:
"Victors season in Allsvenskan last year has hardly escaped anyone in hockey-Sweden. A center with all the tools to become an amazing player and we are happy that Victor will be wearing the HV-shirt next season."

(Sorry for bad translation but hope its somewhat understandable).

He says that he will take one step at a time. He really look forward to play for HV71

About the speculation of Nashville he says he has not signed for Preds, even if/when he signs for Preds he will play in HV71 next season.

Had the same experience from the Netherlands to Spain. Mention Tennessee and people immediately say Jack Daniels, Elvis, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift etc. Would not believe how many times I said I'm from Nashville,TN and they would say "That is where Taylor Swift lives!".

Well, I really hope this guy signs. We have just missed on a handful of players over the years, and we could use a shot of talent into the pipeline.

does that ELC slide if he goes back to Sweden this summer rather than Milwaukee?

As I understand it, yes, it would. And as far as I know, his intention is to go back 100%, unless he somehow makes the Preds roster out of camp.

Its two years, cap friendly confirms that the NHL.com story is correct and the Preds PR dept tweet is wrong.

Included the tweets in our story, which also includes a scouting report.
