Look at his game logs and where he's played in most of those games ... he's had chances. One goal .... that a 5 on 3 ... in his NHL career. Talent is there, knowing how to apply it at the NHL level is lacking.

Washington traded FF because they thought he was a couple years away; they play a system where not so much of a "complete game" is demanded of their Fs - so if in that system they figured he was a couple years away, why would we think he was going to contribute here this year? MIL is where we DEVELOP our guys, and that's where he belongs until we can rely on him to "do the right things", not just show his O potential.

Because folks around here can't distinguish between what they want and what is reality. I want him in Nashville playing 12-15 minutes a night helping us score. The reality is he's lost unless the puck is on his stick.

He's been sent there according to Cooper.

He was sent to Milwaukee. Forsberg will probably play this weekend and then leave for the WJC according to the Admirals Roundtable. They expect him to go back to Nashville if he plays well.

Glad Forsberg is back. Give him some time in Milwaukee and WJC to get back in shape.

Yeah, time in Mil and especially the WJC could do wonders for his confidence, and playing at an elite youth tourney could teach him a thing or two more than he already has.

Not sure he'll learn anything new at the WJC. I'm pretty sure he was captain of the Swedish team last year. I'd rather have him in MIL playing a NA game against stronger guys.

WJC is nothing compared to the level of regular season AHL games. Not too happy with him going.

I'd rather him use this as an opportunity to get his legs under him, hopefully dominate a little bit and carry it over to Milwaukee and force his call up

i disagree, hopefully he goes and is a standout player and gets some confidence going and is able to translate that confidence into Pro ranks success.

Overall I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little worried about this player. Between Trotz likely trotzing him and to be honest I don't think he's as good as advertised. I could see him busting. Yes I am being negative Nancy I Just have a bad feeling.

Once again judging a 19 year old kid as a bust in his very first NHL season. People like this are the worst kind of fan.

First night back in Milwaukee and he's tearing it up. Now just to wait until he's back on the preds fourth line to be wasted some more

Reading comprehension much? I said I could see it when watching him play but it was just a gut feeling. I see abilities the kid has but not out of this world abilities. I see some good skill with the puck and an above average wrister but I also see an average skater and a guy who might not be as successful in the NHL where there is not a lot of room.

I don't know if he's going to bust or not in fact I hope he turns out to be a hell of a player I'm just giving my honest analysis. Isn't that what this website is about?

Two PPGs on Friday playing with Watson and Salomaki. Wait a year or two and call all three up to play as a line in the NHL. Make sure that you have plenty of red light bulbs!

Forsberg said that he felt tired, but good according to the Admirals Roundtable. Scott Darling recorded his second shut out and 4th win in the 4-0 victory over a slow footed San Antonio team.

Tonight the Ads play at Rockford. The Peaches are 2 points ahead of the Admirals, but have played 5 more games. Rockford is 6-2-2 and Milwaukee 5-4-1 in recent games.

By next year he will fall into Trotz's dump at all cost offensive system.
