Yup, Forsberg has 11 points in his last 8 games. He's scored multiple points in four of those 8 games.

From what I've seen of late you can tell that he and his teammates are starting to find each other more and more out there. The way they set up plays and the movement are improving at a steady rate. And it will only get better and better.

I wish heīd play the same physical style of hockey, that he did during his prime. That was the main thing that set him apart from everyone else..

Just wait for it...he'll stop a puck with his testicals during a game that matters.

While much is said overblowing his significance (just as much as people harp on his injuries), of all players in all the major sports, he is just one of those special athletes that has an extra gear when it's all on the line.

Right now, complaining about Peter Forsberg's regular season play is like complaining about Muhammad Ali's haircut...who gives a ****?

I don't know if you saw the game lastnight but he is starting to crank up the physical side of his game.

he's been laying big hits since he got here.

I think, at this point, you're reaching as hard as you can for reasons to tear him down. Is he the same player he once was? Maybe not, but he's a lot closer to what he used to be than Bertuzzi is...so what can you do. You said he wasn't putting up points, now he's PPG, and red-hot as of late. You say he's not physical...he's taking and receiving big hits. You say he has no chemistry with his linemates...all of a sudden, Radulov is on fire, with Forsberg setting him up.

I wish I could recast my vote, because since then, my vote(and likely a lot of others) would go from "pleased" to "thrilled"

I guess you didnīt watch him alot ín Colorado?

Ofcourse heīs not the player he once was, itīs pretty obvious, heīs not even close.

What does Bertuzzi have to do with anything?

In Avalanche he went out on odd shifts where he didnīt even want the puck, he only ran around like a madman leveling people and stirring **** up. More often than not it ended up in a PP for Colorado due to players taking out vengence, or his teammates scoring caused by the opponents focusing on Forsberg instead of the game.

That was Forsberg during his glory days.

Iīd love to see him step it up in the playoffs once again, but Iīm sceptical to say the least.

Forsberg in the playoffs is the least of my concerns. What has he done in recent playoffs to make you think hes not capable this year honestly?

Why argue with the guy? Let's just join hands, and state that Forsberg is the worst sob in this league, and should have retired 5 min ago...

Bilros, you're like a broken record. Same old, same old.

As far as I'm concerned he's played a smart game since he came to Nashville, why go out and hit like a madman with the season he's had so far and with the team Predators have right now? In Philly he had to carry the team on his shoulders, or his sore ankle if you like. And still most of the times he was the guy who went in with a crushing hit so Flyers would wake up. I guess you didn't saw enough Flyers games.

You don't think he still can play the physical game anymore? Against Oilers the other night he almost rammed a guy at center-ice but the Oiler dude got away at the last second. So before you post your tripe, try watch a game will ya.

Even if most of us agree with you that he's not at the level he was for the Avs he's certainly not as bad as you claim he is and those who watch the games knows that. But nice try.

Forsberg is playing well with Radulov of late I hope that line sticks minus Smithson, Fiddler.

He almost hit a guy, and that means heīs playing physical?

Laughable.

Edit: He hited the guy, but the impact could've been a lot worse. You really should watch some games before you post this stuff. Seriously.

The only way he could save this is if he leads his team to a SC, but thatīs doubtful when you look at Nashvilles performances since he joined the team...

You might find this hard to believe, but heīs actually my favourite player of all time. When I get on his case, itīs due to dissapointment, no hatred or whatever you people might believe.

I would LOVE to see him go out on top, and seeing the old Foppa once more, but like I said... Iīm pretty sure that wont happen..

Wait, are you seriously blaming Nashville's downslide on Forsberg?

Is it his fault that Sullivan, Hartnell, Erat and Nichol all got hurt?

Give up, dude. If that's what you're reaching for, you're humiliating yourself.
