Either way, we're having us a barbecue!

Perhaps, the best I got from googling was this speculation from a St. Louis mod on the Prospects board:

The Blues traded him to Boston but like Radulov still owes the Preds the final year of his ELC, Soderberg still owes Boston for the last year or 2 of his ELC. Perhaps that's not right but that's how I'm remembering it anyway.
That would be the perfect scenario for the Bruins because an ELC would make him fairly cheap.

He's not under contract, afaik. The ELC was originally in place when the Bruins initially suspended him for not reporting, but as time went on, they lifted it and it expired. From what I understand, he basically is an RFA for them right now, and will be officially a UFA at the end of this season. The Bruins claim on his rights will expire because of the amount of time that has passed. If that's incorrect, I apologize, but that's what I heard recently..

Does he need to pass through waivers if he were to sign with us for this season?

Is that only if it is after a certain date? But then the NHL didn't allow waivers when Radulov came back for that playoff run and that was after that date - I think.

RE: LSCII: where did you hear that? B/c not too long ago all of us were still scratching our heads about the ELC and if it wasn't in place or was. Just curious.

Waivers for players who played in europe during the season only apply to people who are ufa at the time & sign a new K with a new team. Doesn't apply to people like Radulov & Soderberg who are property of the team they would hypothetically sign with.

i actually talked to kirk about this and he said soderberg would be UFA at season's end. assume that info is coming from sweeney or someone in the front office.

thanks for the clarification - had always been a bit confused on how that worked.

Probably not. But he did mention a desire to do so for next season, which is the first quote that I've heard from HIM that showed that ambition. So there's reason for some optimism.

Yep. Although I admit I wasn't aware that the rule applied for RFA's trades/offer sheets etc. (like the O'Reilly situation.) So if a player is owned by an NHL team but an RFA, like Soderberg, he can play for the Bruins this year without waivers, but since O'Reilly would've been changing teams, he couldn't play for the Flames without clearing waivers.
But he can play for the Avs because he was an RFA they owned.
Learn something every day.

Whay on earth would the Bruins lift the suspension and sacrifice his rights. What purpose would that serve?

Maybe to free up the contract. If they figured he was never coming over, he's taking up a contract they could use to sign someone else (what is the contract limit for teams anyway?)

He doesn't have a contract yet. Bruins own his rights as a result of the Toivonen trade. So there's no saving on the cap to be made if his rights are traded.

How can they suspend a guy who isn't under contract?
