The question of pressure is a foolish one to pursue, IMO. BOTH sides put pressure on Forsberg. The Swedish media screamed and Snider hung his paycheck and the notion of "not being fair" over Forsberg's head. Both sides did the same thing, and neither is "guilty" of anything because both are simply looking out for their own interests. It seems to me the question of playing injured had FAR more merit than a debate over pressure.

Swedish fans and Flyers management must quit grumbling about this. As has already been stated: "Get over it. They're there... They're playing."
