aww. Well, he tried. Foot must be acting up, or he just doesn't have it anymore. Godspeed, Foppa.

I watched a bit of both games Forsberg played over the past few days, and Foppa still has all the hand skills, but the skating speed of Bill Guerin ultimately killed his game.

Wish he would have got a point or two before he retired. Thing is he didn't look bad at all in those two games, even though his +/- said otherwise, there were a few moments where he made people look silly, and his passing was still incredible. Must be just too painful with his foot, and doesn't want to ******* colorado around by being in and out of the lineup, and not knowing if foppa or floppa is gona turn up from night to night when he does play.

Too bad. I had hoped to see him play against Wilkes... Pittsburgh Penguins. He's been a hero since 1992 over here, so it's tough to see him not going out in the way he wants to.

Forget all the misguided comebacks, not playing one last game in front of your home fans tonight, I have a problem with that.

It's sad from the Fans perspective he didn't play @ home.... at least one game there, then retire.

That's easy to say when looking from the outside in.

He was finished after the season we traded him to Nashville. The only person on the planet who didn't know that was Peter Forsberg. His body just cannot hold up.
