Forsberg DOES get hauled down on some checks/holds/grabs that Thornton doesnt gt hauled down on simply because Thornton is BIGGER than Forsberg!
Sometimes I don't think we watch the same league. Peter can be very strong on his skates when he wants to be -- he has a low center of gravity, kind of like a halfback in football -- but he is without question a world class diver when he senses it will draw a penalty.

I agree about Joe though -- he is certainly not the only player in the league that has to find a way to deal with the abuse.
