03:02 PM ET 04.08 | For the Boston Bruins, the trade deadline was a fairly successful one. Acquiring veteran Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars after losing out on both Brenden Morrow and Jarome Iginla, the Bruins added some size and scoring and appear to be set for another deep playoff run. Just because the trade deadline has passed doesn't mean the Bruins aren't finished tinkering with their roster though. According to NESN, the Bruins could sign Swedish forward Carl Soderberg to a NHL contract and bring him to the New England area in time for the cup run. NESN reports that Soderberg was playing in the Swedish Elite League for the team of Linkopings HC and has since been eliminated from their playoffs after losing four straight to the Skelleftea AIK. Reports out of Boston earlier this season had the Bruins signing Soderberg to a pro-contract and finally bringing the power forward to North America.
