I was devestated when he signed with Philly, but I got over it. And seeing that he's as injured as ever I'm glad that Colorado hasn't been saddled with his contract. The Avs are generaing plenty of offense without him. That said, if he doesn't retire at the end of this season (or go back to the SEL, same difference), I wouldn't mind having him back.
From everything I've read sounds like Foppa would like to help try to turn that Philly boat around. I don't see him coming back, if he does I expect him to be as a complimentary player since we have so many youngsters ready to step up.
The thing I fear most is that the Avs start getting sentimental and sign a few of their old star players and bump good young players from their roster.
I would like to see him back, he is the best player in the world when healthy. A guy with that much talent playing with that much heart will teach young guys alot of things. Even if he only plays 60 games a season, he gives your team a good chance to win 60 games.
The only way I want Forsberg back is if he plays left wing on the top line...and I'd only want him back at anything under 2.25M/yr. Bringing him back to be a center would only stunt Stastny's growth and I hope PL, FG and Q can all see where the future lies.
