Forsberg played with MODO this year and was named to the Swedish Olympic team. He has been training regularly for the last two years and even got in a few matches with MODO in 08-09 to test out his foot.

I would be willing to fly to Ornskoldsvik, personally pick him up and bring him back here on my own dime if it meant he suited up for 60 games in a Predators' uniform.

I just don't see Andersson making a significant impact on the roster. He's pushing 30, notoriously injury-prone (has missed 25+ games in five of his ten years as a pro), and his greatest successes have come in the SM-Liiga, which has been paced in scoring by such world-class talents as Toni Koivisto, Justin Morrison, Steve Kariya, and Jukka Hentunen (who is the only player out of the four with a World Championship appearance).

It seems to me like we would be better off just letting a kid like Halischuk take that spot, especially when there's no guarantee Andersson would make the team out of camp.
