SEL teams are known for playing a slower, more tactically sound hockey, he won't be able to skate around like a headless chicken over there.

Exactly. The SEL/Swedish system as a whole is big on setting up the play (sometimes to a fault). And Duchene could use the help with passing and utilizing his teammates. I think the experience will do him good.

Tempted to take the short trip down to Sundsvall to see him, but I am wretchedly poor at present.

I was under the impression that the SEL was only taking on NHL-players if they were willing to sign full-year contracts (a la Cody Franson)...did they relax that stance or did Duchene sign full-term?

Swedish supreme (if I'm not mistaken) court reached a verdict that the NHL player ban in SEL is unlawful.

It was actually the "Authority of Fair Competition."

The league said no to any NHL players but it was found to be in breach of Swedish antitrust laws.

Like already mentioned, I hope this helps get his confidence back. The NHL is a different monster obviously, but this is better than playing no hockey at all.

This lockout is going to linger another month or 2 at least.

He is like a star in the SEL. It doesnt get better than that.

Joakim Lindström was like the Crosby of the SEL in 10/11 season.

Keep your heads up guys. He could be lazy Stewart's brother and playing in the EIHL for free basically (British teams can't even afford NHL level insurance, generally)

Matt practiced with the team for the first time Friday. He looked pretty darn good. You could tell that he's an NHLer by everything he did.

That looks cool, the numbers at the bottom of the pants are awful though lol. Btw one of you guys over in Sweden get me a good high res action shot of Duchene? I wanna design a custom card for him in Frolunda. I don't really collect players in specific but I do buy any cheap Duchene/Sakic/Kamensky/Forsberg cards when I get the chance.

I have a friend who takes a lot of photos at games. I can post a couple once Matt plays a game at home.

You guys may wanna check out the fan590's Hockey Central at Noon later today when they upload today's interviews.

Interesting one with Adrian Dater. Lots of talk about Duchene and the possible reasons why he was passed over for captain, in favour of Landeskog.

Implies that Duchene has an ego and that he and Sacco have not gotten along.

Might be old hat for you guys but it was news to me. Surprised to hear him talk that way about Duchene

Doubt the first part, second one might be possible. I also can't believe Dater would say that BS about a guy he does interviews and whatnot with in the room, I thought he didn't speculate.

Thanks for any Frolunda pics Systemfel.

I wouldn't be surpirssed if he and Sacco don't have the best relationship just based on their personalities, but I don't think ego would have anything to do with it. That's the wrong word for Duchene IMO. I think he's supremely confident in himself and his abilities, but I don't think that's the same as having an huge ego which implies self importance.

it looks so wrong

ps out of everyone, Duchene is the least egotistical person on the team to me.
