Forsberg

Reports are that Forsberg is close to making a decision, and is open to signing anywhere. Obviously he probably has his preferences, but I would have to think that we would be on that list, even with his buddy Kariya gone. Remember the story that before the ownership crisis\his decision to wait, he was actually quoted on how much he liked the city and wouldn't mind playing for us again.

Turn around to a new ownership group who is looking to make a statement--who knows the effect that the Forsberg trade had on ticket sales last season, not to mention merchandise, national publicity, etc...

If we could get Forsberg for the rest of this year and next...do we do it? If it takes offering 1 million more than the next highest offer...I think we have to do it, health in question or not. We had our problems in the playoffs last year...he wasn't one of them. It was more the fact that he was dishing to, at times, Vernon Fiddler that hurt us.

Anyway, just food for thought
