Kinda interesting that the other three NHLers from Denmark all signed with Lukko.

Not all of them. Peter Regin is playing in Switzerland.

The three players in Finland decided to go there because Frans Nielsen's brother, Simon Nielsen, is a goalie there.

That is at least the reason Frans Nielsen went there. The other's probably wanted to play with Frans rather than with Simon, but I think the main reason is that the Finnish ice is smaller than Swedish and thereby closer to NHL size.

Well yes, i thought that was kind of implicit. But yes, maybe not for our NA friends

Duchene and Stalberg with Frolunda are examples of locked out NHL players playing in the SEL.

You don't say?

The only other locked out NHL player in the SEL is Alexander Steen in Modo. Both Frölunda and Modo signed these players as emergency replacements for injured key players, and by doing so were basically frozen out by the rest of the league. For example holding league meetings without Frölunda and Modo, these three signings have rocked the foundation of the SEL and some have speculated that this is the end of the SEL as a joint league owned by the clubs.

So no, locked out NHL:ers are de facto not welcome in the SEL, Frölunda and Modo made emergency signings but have not yet dared to sign any other players due to the current situation in the league. And I can assure you that they both have plenty to choose from since they are two of the top talent factories in Sweden. Had NHL:ers been welcome you'd see Lundqvist, Karlsson, Eriksson, and perhaps Eller, Larsen suiting up for Frölunda, and the Sedins, Hedman, and Enström in Modo.

I'm guessing by his username he's a JYP fan.

I think he'll be second line and left wing. Should be more offensive role for him than in the Canadiens.

Thanks! It would have been better if he played center but he might have to switch to wing on the Habs eventually so its a good thing that experiment doesn't have to happen here first. Anyways, I wish the best for him and JYP! Keep us updated on his exploits

Wow that's pretty intense. Will be interesting how that works out.

Also worth noting is that the league went public with the deal that NHL:ers weren't allowed, with Frölunda and Modo saying they stood by the decision, but as many suspected and it eventually turned out they were not interested in such an agreement at all. Because Modo turned to lawyers who filed a claim with the Swedish Competition Authority that the league was forming a cartel, and the government agreed and warned the SEL, and also set a 20 million SEK fine on the league if they didn't allow open market competition.

Shortly after this decision Modo signed Steen, and a week or so later Frölunda got Stålberg and Duchene. All signed as injury replacements according to the teams, which was also true since Modo had Påhlsson injured and Frölunda Olimb and Dick Axelsson. But no others have been signed since this issue is very infected, and as you can see both Frölunda and Modo are doing their own thing but so far doing it under the pretext for injures for now (since Dick Axelsson has returned from his and Steen stated that his intention was to play with Modo no matter what).
