Forsbergs Value??

Alot of talk of Forsberg leaving Philly for Vancouver. It makes sense to some degree because he is on record saying that he would love to play with Naslund again.
However how long he plays in NHL is a bigger question. He has also stated that he wants to return to Sweden soon to play for his fathers club team.
So how does this affect his value?
Would the Canucks become a top Cup contender with him?
If the answer is yes the Forsbergs value would be quite high, but Vancouver wont want to give up too much for a player that may not play past this year.
It makes sense to deal with Vancouver from Peter's perspective but I am not sure that the situation is right for either team to make a Forsberg deal.
Personally I would keep Forsberg and try to resign him to another 2 year deal . Send Hatcher and Rathje to the minors and start developing more speed on the Blueline. I think our Forwards are strong enough, but the blueline creates so many problems that it has a negative effect on the Forward units.

What would be a Reasonable return for Forsberg and are there any previous trades in the league that reflect this situation to base an opinion on?

Just my thoughts

Later

Vancouver is right up against the cap. This can not and will not happen.

I think the best scenario is you hold onto him until the deadline, then his cap hit won't be so big. If you are out of the playoff hunt you think about dealing him. Teams go crazy with bidding at the deadline and the return should be pretty big. Just look at last year. Tyler Arnason fetched Bochenski and a 2nd.

Redden strait up?

Only caveat is that Forsberg tends to be injured by the time the deadline arrives.

don't care who, but you get a team that is on the edge of being a playoff team and a legitimate cup contender (i.e. a 5th seed) at the deadline, and he can command some great youth and picks. the fact that he may not return only strengthens his value. no team wants to commit almost 6 mil to a guy that will do well to give you 60 games

at the deadline he would only cost like 1.75 mil. not 5.75

exactly...meaning his giant salary (for next year) won't matter in a team picking him up. he's a low risk financially.

If he is not going to resign with us, I dont mind a package including Morrison a decent role player and a good dman. I would include something else if needed.

At least Morrison is a good playmaking center as well and should complement Gagne.

Its a thought, but one I do not want to think about at the moment.

But from what I've heard his got a no trade clause in his contract so he need to agree with the club about being traded, and frankly I don't think he's the guy that will let up on the team, especially not now when he's a captain.

Replace Vermette for Lee and you have my attention.

They wont trade forsberg, it just wont happen. Unless, were at the bottom of the barrel, but i still doubt the organization would do it.

For a team high in chances and low in delivery, a deadline deal to OTT for Vermette and Volchenkhov would make good sense for both squads.

Forsberg will have immense value at deadline if he wants to go.

Vermette and Volchenkhov OTT

Weber and 2nd NASH

Regehr CALG

Bobby Ryan and 2nd ANA

Trevor Daley and 1st DAL

Datsyuk (UFA as well) and 2nd DET
