Do you want Peter Forsberg to play again?

He still has the talent to score 1 PPG, but dont have the body (foot) to be healthy.

Who can anyone that loves hockey not want to see him play again?


The problem ofc. is if his wonky foot ever will heal.
Im sure Forsberg will make the right decision on what to do, comeback/retire.


Like Steve Yzerman said pretty recently.

"Obviously one of the best players in the league the last 15 years, a guy who really controlled the play when he was on the ice, and there's only a handfull of guy's in the league at any given era that really, actually controlled the play when they were on the ice. Just his combination of skill, strenght, determination and a bit of meaness, or a lot of meaness actually, made him one of the best players to ever play."


Poetry on ice.

Not really, he's done, and I hate seeing good players suffer more due to their injuries.

If and only if he can get his wonky foot to actually work, and not just for 3-4 games before acting up again.

I would, as long as we didn't have to listen to months of speculation on where he'd end up.

I don't think that would happen.

If he plays at all, he'll play with the Avs.

If he was a normal player, sure fine. If he showed up to camp, played the preseason, and played 65+ games. Cool...

I just that the drama that goes with this guy. "Will he return? Where will he return"

Who cares... Same goes for Sundin, or Neids when he was pulling this ****

Which sadly, I don't think is possible at this point.

I voted no, and Forsberg was my favourite player.

No I don't want to see him come back and get injured in the second game. I would rather remember him as he was a dynamic player not someone who just can't let go.

I read the question as "do you want to see him back".

If actually healthy? 100% yes.

Do I think he will be back?

No.

I would like to see him play if he can, he probably can't.

What I'd wish for is a full recovery and no more foot problems and then he'd sign and play with a team.

I'd like to see him back and he'd still put up great numbers, but I doubt he'd be able to play more than 40 games.

Hockey was easy for Forsberg, of course it would be amazing to see him back.

I must have missed this part. Did people think he'd play somewhere other than Colorado last year? I know the media probably threw out some BS, but I think most people knew if he played it would be for the Avs.

You named two players who were uncertain about their future, and if they ever wanted to play again...along with Peter Forsberg, who would die to be healthy enough to play. The guy spends nearly his whole year trying to figure out how to get his ankle not to roll in his skate. Seeing countless doctors etc, he is not even remotely close to the same category as the other two.

I would say I would love to see Peter play again. But thats me being selfish. As a hockey fan he's one of the most entertaining/talented players i've ever witnessed before. To say his career/potential was cut short due to injuries would be an understatement.

Even if he came back for Colorado, yes I will like to see anyone capable of playing in the NHL, IN the NHL. Not defectors like Radulov :p

I don't think Forsberg has been himself since back in 05-06 when he started the season scoring 39 points in the first 21 games. After that he was injured and never really came back. I love to watch him play but it's frustrating to see him play when you know he would be so much better if he was completely healthy. Unfortunately he will probably never be back for real again.

Sad thing is, he wasn't even healthy those 21 games - along with already losing a step, and he still blew the league away.

He should hang them up...period.

Of course I want to see him back, he can still be effective and he's dying to return. Don't know someone would want him to fail, he deserves to retire on his own terms.
