Forsberg's contract is up with MODO this season. My guess is that he'll get offers to stay in Sweden, but the Jackets should try to bring him over. Forsberg worked with the Jackets' goalie coach, Ian Clark, when he was coming up through MODO's junior system, so they have a relationship and it would be easier for Clark to work with him in Springfield than in Sweden.
A season in the Eliteserien as the starting goalie wouldn't be a bad idea for any goalie's development. But, I think the Jackets need to push to get him over here and adjusting to NA hockey. He'll only be 20 when the season starts.
