***ALL Forsberg Rumours Here***

The Detroit Free Press claimed today that Forsberg said he'd like to go to one of these 3 teams..

Detroit, Anaheim, Montreal.

There's a post in the Forsberg thread on the trade board.

What are we susposed to be giving up?

Price, Plekanec, Higgins, Latendresse, Grabovski and Kostitsyn better not be involved.

Perezhogin is the key skater from what I've read (along with a sure fire prospect, 1 or 2 picks and likely another skater to balance the team salary) but that was a couple of weeks ago

Read the Redwings board and say that.They really want him bad and they are loaded with Swedes already.I say Wings defer Haseks and Chelios bonuses towards next years cap and get him.

Detroit are not going to take two RFas in Higgens and Plekanec who are due for big raises.

"We're going to have to win a lot of games, but there have been crazier things that (have) happened," Guerin said. "You just got to try to win every game."

While the Wings might have interest in one of the Blues' forwards, they remain most interested in Philadelphia's Forsberg -- and the interest appears to be mutual. Forsberg is said to be willing to renounce his no-trade clause for three teams -- Detroit, Montreal and Anaheim.

At least 2 of those are playoff teams...

Why would Forsberg go to Montreal over Anaheim and Detroit is beyond me. Provided he wants to get a shot at the Cup of course.

He'll end up in Detroit. Better chance to win the cup + he will play with his compatriots Zetterberg and Lidstrom.

Detroit can, and will, offer up more assets than we can.

Who said he would come here over any other city. Still, Shanahan went to NYR over Montreal probably to be on a contender and look how that worked out.

I don't know if they have the cap room, but Anaheim would be great, even if Forsberg (swe) would have to play with a finish (Selanne). Bobby Ryan could be a nice asset for Phili.

Roster players excluded , Anaheim has better quality to offer than anyone. Detroit probably does have more willingness to part with picks /prospects though.

Forsberg watch: 4 scouts on scene
Friday, February 9, 2007

http://www.courierpostonline.com/app...59/1002/SPORTS


While Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren chatted with senior vice president Bob Clarke before Thursday night's game, Don Luce was working the press box, where scouts from four NHL teams were in attendance.

Luce, the Flyers' director of player development, was engaged in a long pregame conversation with Montreal Canadiens scout Doug Gibson. Scouts from Vancouver, Florida and Atlanta also were in attendance.

The Canadiens are believed to be one of about a dozen teams interested in putting together a trade package for Peter Forsberg.

"If there is a sweepstakes," Gibson said, "I imagine almost every team will be calling."

He'll go in Detroit and Anaheim way before Montreal.
Both are cup contender and we'r a non-playoff team contender...

He already has 2? cup rings. I think he'd be more interested in helping a team in greater need than Anaheim or Detroit imo... In montreal he'd have a challenge... One to bring a hockey-crazy city to the stanley cup, when they had no intentions or visions of making it. We haven't been to the promise land in 13+ years and I'd think that he'd get a greater deal of pride in helping this storied franchise over Detroit (who's had good success in recent years) and Anaheim (who aren't a storied franchise and are already favorites for making the finals).

It depends on what kind of man Forsberg is... Only he knows what he'd take greater joy in doing/accomplishing.

I understand that, but all things considered I don't see many incentives to pick Montreal over the other two cities. That's what I'm saying.

Ryan, yeah, Philly was pretty high on him at the draft. Was it only a Clarke thing or was the scouting staff also in love with him?
