"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.
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."
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 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.
