Wow you guys ask for a source and I give you a source, yet you still cant get over that he MIGHT not play for your precious Avs.
here we go with that canuck inferiority complex AGAIN...when will you get over it??? Here's what I do know, it is no secret around Denver that Forsberg wants to play for the Avs. You don't need a source, link, or whatever, just meet a few folks in Denver who know Peter and they all say the same thing. I'm not going to say that he WILL play for the Avs because it takes two to tango, but I can say with a very high degree of certainty that Detroit, and Vancouver have and never will be options for Forsberg. Trust me, I know people who know him very well...thes guys do have a social life and ithat info goes deeper than any article, or quote from anyone. peace
Hmm yeah wishful thinking. I remember hearing Daren Dregger say that on TV, and here is a link that basically implies the same thing. I think the wishful thinking comes on behalf of you Colorado fans, who believe that you guys are the only team that he would even consider playing for.
1.) This is based on the Flyer GM's speculations
2.) Holmgrem wanted the best value he can get for forsberg
3.) Forsberg is a free agent now, not a trade piece, this is completely different. He can now choose where ever he wants to go, not where Holmgrem is willing to trade him to.
4.) I don't believe the Avs are the only team he consider playing for, but we have a higher chance then any of the teams listed in this link.
i think montreal seems like a good destination. Just personal speculation...
His girlfriend has Montreal connections.
His skates company is in Montreal.
His doctor is in Montreal.
He said he wanted to play for a Canadian team.
Montreal needs a top-2 center badly.
Montreal has the money.
He and his agent have been spotted around Montreal recently.
Forsberg should be an AV again IMO. It was a shame that he had to leave in the first place. Certain players when you think of them, one uniform comes to mind and I think Forsberg is one of those players.
But with all that said, if he doesn't come back to the AV's...we would welcome him in MTL.
