Rangers Offer Forsberg 6 Million - JD

He said it on WFAN ealier. From what Naslund has said earlier, Forsberg has picked where he will be playing and will be annoucing it in the next 24-48 hours.

Our bid is in there, if he wants to live in NYC I think he will accept.

I don't know what the man's preferences are...but its just as easy to live on the island or in jersey and play for the NYR. That's even if these people who act like they're his therapist are correct in saying he hates spotlight and big cities.

Eklund says Forsberg is a Flyer...so we'll see. I'm not sure where we put Forsberg if we even do sign him now, with all the vets we have signed...we have too many guys now.

PHI is impossible. They have a little less than 11 million and have to sign Esche, Johnsson, Seidenberg, Gagne, Sharp. That's without the two rookie contracts of Carter and Richards. Unless Forsberg plays for pennies or a major trade goes down, that can't happen.

I don't know if the Flyers have any room left. They must be close.

"I'm not sure where we put Forsberg if we even do sign him now, with all the vets we have signed...we have too many guys now."

i would guess we move straka and lundmark to wing, or try lundmark as 3rd line center.

straka-forsberg-jagr
rucinsky/kid-nylander-balej?
rucinsky/kid-lundmark-kid
4th line of kids and/or role playing vets

or or swap lundmark to LW as the "kid" on the 2nd or 3rd line, and play a murray, or wiseman, or moore as 3rd line center... if he earns it.

there's room for forsberg in the lineup, but depending on the length of the offer i'm not sure there's room on the payroll.
