Johan Harju again?

As translated from Swedish daily Expressen

Luleć's dream recruit, Johan Harju is still a name for Tampa Bay. Tampa is offering him a new contract worth SEK 4.8 million.

Tampa Bay has far from given up on Johan Harju and according to sources retains rights to him by offering him a 'qualifying offer.
The two-way agreement gives him an annual salary equivalent to SEK 4.8 million. His AHL salary would be much less than he earns in Lulea.


Ten NHL games
- We have not received anything yet. If it is as you say it's not interesting, says Harju’s agent Patrik Aronsson.
Johan Harju only played ten NHL games (1 goal, 2 assists) with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The rest of the time he spent in the Farm Team Norfolk, where he made solid points. Harju scored 23 goals and had 30 assists in 63 games in the AHL. But playing in the minor league was not what the World Cup qualified center dreamed of and this spring he signed with his former team Lulea (SEL).
Even Lulea Current D, Johan Fransson have received an NHL offer. Los Angeles, who this past season loaned him to the KHL club SKA St. Petersburg, has sent him a qualifying offer of SEK 4.3 million.

I still want him here, but he has to work for that spot.

Yep. Kids got talent, but seems to have a problem with realizing there is serious competition at forward on this team. He hasn't done anything to overly impress thus far.

He might be a decent fit on the 3rd line in replacement of Surge but he'd have to show a hell of a lot more effort than he did this past season when he was up here.

I thought he played quite well, just a very contrasting style. His play is more of a less physical Malone and when you put him with Dom, it looks like hes lazy.

Could he return to play here next season or would we have to wait a season?

I like the sound of that. I'd give him 1-year. Let him prove he's worth that much, then more.

Guys on the BP board are thinking the Swedish media may have confused Tampa extending a qualifying offer to Harju for actually giving him a contract.

That may well be the case. There's been a tremendous amount of miscommunication in the Swedish media over Harju in the past.

From the OP, I think the necessary components are there, but there's a matter of interpretation after that.

Here in Sweden, everyone thinks that Harju is getting a serious contract. But that "contract" is just an qualifying offer to maintain the rights of Harju?
