Dimitrakos now plays for Skelleftea in the Swedish Elite League. They're in first place after 33 games and Dimitrakos has scored 16 goals and 16 assists. That makes him the top goal scorer...

The thing I remember most about Dimitrakos is in his first game with the Flyers he dove head first to block a shot.

starts we can expect a lineup something like this:

Gagne -- Forsberg -- Knuble
Umberger -- Carter -- Richards
Eager -- Handzus -- Kapanen
Nedved -- Robitaille -- Dimitrakos

holy ****, which one would you rather?

Gagne-Richards-Knuble
Hartnell-Carter-Lupul
Upshall-metropolit-Briere
Cote-Powe-Asham

Wow. What a difference in 2 seasons

Please for the love of God just say no to Forsberg.
He is finished. hes done.
Let him go to the Avs to finish his career. They need the forwards anyway with Sakic and Stastny being out anyway.
No need to bring in Forsberg to ruin the chemistry this team has now at forward.

As good as the Flyers top three centers have been, Forsberg is still better. You don't add Forsberg and get worse, even if he's only playing on one leg.

I'd love the opportunity to see him play again. Nobody controls the puck the way he can. The way he just holds onto the puck and waits for the perfect chance to develop, while the opposing team is afraid to make a move, is something to behold.

He's not done at all. And he has better chemistry with Gagne and Knuble than any other center they've had.

He is finished. He no longer has a place on this team. We are FINE at forward.
You arent happy with Richards,Carter and Briere down the middle?
What chemistry? he hasnt been here in 2 seasons and you say that? please.
Some people really need to let it go. So fine he comes here. Who do you trade? Lupul? Hartnell?
Then what do you do when Forsberg goes down with his foot issues?
call up the great Jon Kalinski?
no thanks.
This team does not need to add another forward. scoring goals is not a problem.

He IS done. Done = he cannot stay healthy = he will disrupt lines on a very regular basis. Has nothing to do with skill set. He is simply unreliable. He will be out for 3 or more and then back in for maybe 4 or 5.

Please... we do not need this!!

He is done.

This team does not need to add another forward. scoring goals is not a problem.
14 points in 9 games last season. 5 points in 7 playoff games. He is not done by a longshot.

Where did I say I wasn't happy with Richards, Carter, and Briere? I didn't. Adding Forsberg makes the Flyers better not worse.

Forsberg played great with Knuble and Gagne. Two years apart won't change that. They're all veterans that know what to do, and how to play with each other. Your chemistry arguement is without merit.

Let what go, hope that the Flyers might add a great player without giving up anything other than cash? Yeah, let's hope the Flyers don't do that. That would be horrible.

Why are you assuming they'd lose anyone? Briere has been on LTIR, they should have enough to squeeze Forsberg in under a prorated contract. The Flyers are the perfect team for him to join. He'd only help them, not hurt them. With their forward depth, if he misses any games it wouldn't be the end of the world for them. Furthermore, I don't even care if he plays during the regular season. Sign him, then put him on LTIR, and as long as he's ready for the playoffs, I'm happy.

as asanine as it seems, by adding forsberg, we're running out of skilled wingers for richie and carter. the present lines that richards and carter are centering have shown they can produce at a high level.

dunno, make a line of forsberg, briere and nodl, with foppa getting some power play time? if forsberg comes in and we've got a healthy lineup--aside from foppa, who won't ever be fully healthy--we roll three first lines, simple as that. god help the top pairing d-men for other teams...

That's the main thing. His inconsistency was in-****ing-furiating. Good for chemistry? Did someone really just say that???

Having forsberg back would be rather interesting. I would like to see them add some kind of veteran wing or center to play with danny on the 3rd line, because otherwise you are just wasting his potential PPG production...which he probably wouldnt get playing with upshall, nodl, metro. Forsbergs injuries are a concern, but with the emergence of our other two lines, its not like hed be relied on to carry the team like he did 2 seasons ago.

Probably wouldnt happen...but it would be sweet to see forsberg setting up briere...who is a very good finisher.

Gotta agree with others. Forsberg is DONE. He cannot stay healthy because his body overcompensates for that bad foot of his. It's time to let go of anything Forsberg related. No need of staying in the past. It's time to move and look forward and leave Peter in the review mirror.

I read this yesterday and immediately went to the Flyers website. Then I was extremely
confused. Then I read the dates of the posts and saw 2006.

Real Funny. Why did this get bumped!!!

FTR, Im not in favor of a Foppa return.

um, its peter forsberg guys. At the right price, he can play for us any day of the week, and twice on sunday. Plus, he is becoming the bionic man. Don't have the link, but when he played for Colorado last, he had a battery inserted in his pants to help stimulate the muscles in the foot to keep it from going all retarded in his skate. Next up, he'll have a battery inserted into his chest which lights up, and it'll be like Ironman on skates! No one will be able to stop him!
But I digress, having forsberg can't hurt, especially if hes playing on the third line, or having him on a wing. For christ sake, use him as a third liner and a PP specialist, it would be nuts how ridic. our PP would be and how balanced of an attack we would have, and if we need the cap space, thats why we have an excess of defensemen, trade one.

If Forsberg was garenteed heallthy for every game, then Id take him back. As a kid, Foppa was my favorite player (and then I read Full Spectrum and learned we drafted him, and traded him for Lindros, man was I pissed..) and still is one of my alltime favs. Forsberg is a great player, and if he doesnt get hurt I say sign him, but I dont think the risk is worth the Reward. Id take a Healthy Foppa over briere ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

I would not be happy if this team added Forsberg.
Someone said it best, he is unreliable healthwise. Dont think i can say it better myself.
Anyone who thinks we wouldnt have to move anyone significant to fit in Forsberg is kidding themselves.
Briere is on LTIR? for how much longer? a week, maybe 2?
There is no doubt how good he is when he is healthy. But here in lies the problem.
when.

If the Flyers can find a way to fit him under their cap without sacrificing a core player, they'd do it in a second. I have no doubt whatsoever about that.

The only point of adding forsberg would be for the playoffs...and despite his injury history in the regular season...i dont believe hes ever missed a playoff game in his career...and is probably one of the best playoff performers in the game. He showed last year he can not only play, but still produce. With him, i think theyd be a better team. And if he did get hurt and did miss playoff games for the first time in his career...so what? They are no worse off then they were before the signed him.
