I have been for a new coach and GM for a while but I am really getting tired of this mess.
Elias Lindholm also played on the NHL roster right up to the tournament unlike Forsberg who was out for weeks before cleared to play in the WJC.

Sending back to the Ads is the right move. He is not going to help our pathetic goalie situation. Give him some time to get his confidence back against the grown ups and bring him in when he's ready. He sat for a while because of the injury and a handful of games at a Jr tourny isn't going to get him ready for the NHL.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this kid in the Preds system. He has tons of skill and sees the ice extremely well, but I fear that as with other prospects, he will not be free to develop in this system. With the plays he sees and tries to execute, there is risk involved. If the risk does not come with more reward, he will find himself in the press box, losing confidence until he conforms to the dump and chase game.
There are many other teams that allow their young prospects to "free wheel" and are not as defensive minded that he would not only flourish in, but enjoy the game more with the skill he has.
He is a special player, and I hope I am wrong. Time will tell.

Hey good job being the MVP of the world juniors, now go sit at the kiddie table again. You don't think this is detrimental to his confidence?

I am sorry. This is the last straw for me. I can't condone cheering for this team with Poile and Trotz leading the group anymore. I will be cheering for individual success (Hornqvist, Fisher, others) but I don't want this team to win. All good things must come an end,and Poile and trotz have reached that point. The name on the front is more important than the one on the back, but if the guys in charge of the name on the front are completely senile, you gotta realize that the only way to fix things is to lose.

I think it's good for his confidence if he can keep playing the way he has in Milwaukee. He'll get 10-15 more minutes than he would here and that's what he needs.

Incredibly disappointed. This is just unreal. He had so much momentum and we just wasted all of it. I think we at least should have played him in Hornqvist's spot for a few games and evaluated him as a top 6 forward before making a decision. This guy has proven he is ready IMO. He won't succeed under Trotz though, if Trotz insists he becomes a defensive specialist.

This right here was a stupid move. They should have at least given him 1-2 games to see how he would play now before sending down. This has to be the ultimate confidence breaker. Honestly if I was FF, I would want to be traded at this point. So long as Trotz is here, he will never be able to reach his potential. And for those who ask how do I know this, just look at Smith and Wilson.

Just look at two players who are much better now than when they first showed up as an indictment of player development?

On second thought, maybe Forsberg asked to be sent down. At least he will be utilized correctly rather than have someone decide he needs to be a grinder.

Something had to be done with him following his return from loan to Sweden.

MVP against a bunch of teenagers is a long way from even being a viable NHL player. Most AHL teams would match up pretty well to what he just finished playing. This isn't a step back, it is a step forward. He still has a bit to learn before he's NHL ready, but when he is he will be something to watch.

Nobody is trying to make Forsberg a "defensive specialist" or eliminate offense from his game. His play shows that he needs several areas of his play to develop if he is ever going to succeed in the NHL.

I think they should send him back to Leksand on a loan, the year out. He wasn't ready for the NHL and SHL-hockey probably would have been better for his development. He would've played in a second line in a league that's better than the AHL.

Also we need him in Leksand

He's 19, and not a Crosby, Malkin, even Mackinnon or Jones level prospect. It really shouldn't be surprising that he likely isn't ready for NHL level competition yet.

Having a legitimate offensively gifted prospect is exciting, but that doesn't mean the team should rush him.

Its a good thing we sent our 19yo super teenage forward prospect down to learn the American game of Hockey, just like we did teenager Seth Jones, and other super teenagers from other teams like Alex Galchenyuk, Nail Yakupov, MacKinnon, Barkov, Nichushkin and Lindholm.

Although I would like to see him playing with the Preds, I don't like the idea of playing him in Trotz system of Defense first and D&C. Maybe playing in Milwaulkee will be better so when we do get a different coach, he wont have to learn two different systems.

That does nothing to develop his game for North American ice. Forsberg does well on the larger ice against other teens. He needs to learn to play against adults on the smaller surface.

No player asks to be sent back to the AHL.

SHL is the senior hockey league. Not a junior-league.

So is the AHL and ECHL ... either of which does more to help Forsberg transition to playing against men on smaller ice than any senior Euro league.

Maybe it's a bad example but even Radulov was sent to the Ads for 11 games. He then played the next with the Preds. Maybe it's just so he can get those first line minutes, and fine tune his game. The kid is 19, it's going to take time to tune him but it will be worth it.

It would do Forsberg good to play on one of the stronger teams in AHL.
