I don't know who he would watch it with on the road, but at home you get to sit with Brent Peterson for 60 minutes and dissect a game. For a guy 3-4 years in, it is a motivational tactic, a wake up call if you will. I have no issue with Forsberg sitting last night. We played well enough to win the game, minus, Josi, Fisher, Forsberg and Stalberg's offensive game thus far, which is saying something about Minnesota.
Totally agree. It's frustrating when we don't score, but Forsberg sitting wasn't the reason. It was needed.
