It wouldn't be a complete hockey season without the annual foppa thread.
I am very openly not a fan of Forsberg considering all the drama he caused us during the whole ordeal of "is he coming back? yes I am! no I'm not. Hey, I'm coming back to the Flyers! Hey, I just signed with the Avalanche!"
As far as I'm concerned... Thank you for your time here Forsberg. It was great while it lasted. Now stay the **** out of Philly.
I know I'll probably get **** for talking badly about him, I don't really care. And don't get me wrong I loved having him here but I'm over it now... how about Flyers fans everywhere do the same, eh?
Please trust me on this... Forsberg will never again be able to play more than just a handfull of games in a row. He won't even last the entire Olympics imo. His foot is not right. You can see it in his eyes when he gets questioned about it. He's very touchy about it and you can tell that the media here in Sweden have been told to stay away from the subject in interviews...
Along with Lindros he's the best player I've ever seen in a Flyers jersey and I loved him here but it's not in our best interest to sign him now. He can still be dominant in short strings but he's not the same and won't stay healthy..
Yes highly unlikely. However. Would a team knowing he only wanted to play for the flyers want to put in a waiver claim? That isnt good for there image and th elike. Forsberg and his agent could then steer potential free agenst away from said team and the backlash may not be worth it.
