I find it interesting... I know the guy has had injury problems but apparently he feels ready to play and 100% (which he hasn't felt for a long time). He had an unrelated injury a few weeks ago but it didn't keep him from playing too long. I would enjoy watching him play as perhaps our 2nd line C or LW.
Foppa would make his line the 1st, not 2nd.
I mean, this guy healthy or not has only had one season where he averaged less than a 1pt/gp with 55pts in 57GP.
He's a first liner in the NHL with one foot.

His injury plagued career is a damn shame as he could have easily been the best player in the NHL. Having been a Qc fan for a big part of my childhood, I saw him play quite a lot. When healthy, he was definitely one of, if not the best player in the league.

I'd take a risk on Forsberg any day of the week. That's considering he doesn't expect a 5M paycheck.
