Forsberg himself had said that he would never play for another NHL team other than the Avalanche. Obviously the new CBA had something to do with that. He also said in a Denver Post interview during the 96-97 season that he doesnt want to go back to Sweden as a decrepid 30 year old when he retires from the NHL. By the time he goes back to Sweden for good he very well could be banged up in his mid thirties. While I dont think he will be in Vancouver in 2010,it could still happen.
