Grossmann has been trying to join SSK for much of this lockout, and Expressen reports that talks began back in the summer. The hold up revolves around insurance costs. The $3.5 million per year contract Grossmann signed late last season with the Flyers costs more to insure than Read's entry-level deal, and those costs are proving prohibitive.
Hopefully Grossmann never plays a game in Sweden, if only because that means we're playing NHL hockey sooner than later.
