Could Bruins net Carl Soderberg soon?

OK, we’ve been through this a few times, but here goes once more, with gusto: The Bruins think they have a reasonable shot at getting Swedish center Carl Soderberg on their roster in the next few weeks. Check the sky nightly this week to see if the cow jumps over the moon, too.

Had it been up to general manager Peter Chiarelli and crew, Soderberg, 27, would have been here long ago, soon after Chiarelli acquired his rights from St. Louis in a 2007 trade of goalie Hannu Toivonen. But Soderberg, despite constant hints and suggestions that he was coming this way, has remained in Sweden, where this season he finished tops in league goal scoring (31) and second in points (60).
