Henrik Lundqvist isn't any closer to joining Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League.
The league still has a ban on allowing its clubs to sign locked-out NHL players to contracts with escape clauses. "Nothing has changed. I'm not going to play for Frolunda unless things change," said Lundqvist in an e-mail to the NY Post. "Just trying to stay ready in case things change overseas. The longer I have to wait, obviously the more I want to join my brother [Joel] on Frolunda, but right now I'm sitting tight. I really hope we can find a solution with the NHL now. I'm so disappointed it has gone this far."
