Sports Illustrated. Bruins recently signed him to three year deal. Appears transfer will be blocked until end of World Championships in May.

Not surprising, this is the reason Jarnkrok cannot suit up in Detroit this season at all, must be returned from Grand Rapids after tomorrows game. If they want him for the WC they built in a rule for it. All you can hope is they actually use him in a good role, I will be very angry if Team Sweden doesn't give Jarnkrok a good role and playing time in this years WC. But Swedish hockey has a right to protect their assets, the rule exists for just this reason.

Things seems to have been patched up with Swedish IHF as he's been signed and heading to Boston.

Is blocking someone from playing where they want because you want to play in a tournament that doesn't matter really a good idea? I'd be pissed and refuse to play.

The World Championships matter a lot to the SIHF, particularly this year when they are hosting the event.

The fact that you (and many other North Americans, who make the same argument) presume that the World Championship is "meaningless" to everyone just because that's how you feel about it only shows how ignorant you are of the hockey world outside of NA.

Is what [MOD] Euros fail to grasp is that anything relating to hockey that fails to either generate wide spread interest in or directly benefit North America is not only meaningless but most likely harmful to the game [in North America].

But seriously, for all the "it's meanlingless" and "no one cares" talk the WC gets on this board, this year, like just about any other non Olympic year, the most watched hockey game of the year will be a WC game.

Anyway... To keep this post on topic... Good to see this get worked out... What number will Soderberg be wearing.

Glad it worked out though, let's see how he does.

Being able to keep players for the WC is all Sweden got out of their transfer deal with the NHL. So of course it is worth it, otherwise the transfer deal would be completely meaningless and the NHL could continue to poach players from Sweden at will.

Also the WC aren't meaningless. They've been held every year since the 1930's for a reason - they're popular and profitable.

The revenues from the World Champs will supply Swedish hockey's development, and in the end more NHL players, fyi. It's the biggest income for the SIHF in a 10 year period. The last three Championships held in Sweden(-89, -95, -02) made a combined a ~$18.5M profit, or around $6M per tournament. That's a lot more than it sounds and going forward the tournaments you get to host will also be further apart. The 2012 and 2013 numbers will be put together after this year's tournament and they need to make up for last year's tournament. That's why it's of importance, before anyone's calling it meaningless. The profitability of the tournament is also the main reason it's hosted every year. Hockey Canada might have the resources anyway, but the European associations need the money. Hockey Canada can make their money on the World Juniors every so often, aswell, the European countries can't because the World Champs are bigger here. Food for thought.

However -- my problem with this whole mess is that it isn't Soderberg the success hinges on. Using Soderberg's existence or nonexistence in the tournament as a factor is extremely shallow and simply not true. I wish they just stated they wanted him on the team, not made some arguments they owe the Swedish fans blah blah.

What about last year's WC's where tickets were outrageous and no one showed up to the games?
