I like FF and like the trade, but I think he's getting an unfair amount of expectations placed on him becuase we have no other forward prospects to latch onto. And, because his last name is Forseberg.
I'm not sure that this is true.

In any case, Washington drafted him thinking he was a center, so I'm not sure how much one can actually credit teh Washington scouting staff at this point.

Forsberg is a very talented player. There's a pretty good reason he has expectations that he does, and it has very little to do with his last name. He's a big forward, with great hockey sense, slick hands, good skating and a great shot. He lead the Swedish team in goals, assists and points and was the friggin captain FFS.
