No. It's a question about Swedish Elit league doesn't allow lock out players in their league, if is not for replacing injured key players.
Frölunda really really want him to stay, but "Hockeyligan AS" says no.
A really stupid rule IMO.
They doesn't even allow Henric Lundquist or Erik Karlsson to play for them, even though they would play for free.
If the NHL season is canceled, then there will be OK. They have to sign for the rest of the season, with no NHL out clausule.
So the Swedish Elite league doe's help the NHL with their CBA negotiations. The Swedish NHL players are not allowed to work at the top level in their home country. At level 2 in "Allsvenskan" they are allowed.
