He is not skating. In one of the Avs pregame shows last week, I heard that he 'hopes' to be back for a few games before the playoffs. But no one knows.

Groins are a weird injury, they can put a player out for one game or twenty games. With Forsberg's luck this season, it'll probably be a while yet. He tweaked it during a pre-game skate if I recall correctly, which means he was probably already playing hurt. I'm not sure how you can severely injure your groin in a pre-game skate...unless you were stretching using bad form.

Yeah, I'd be surprised to see him in the lineup anytime soon. But I'm no expert.

Looks like Colorado may to have to pick it up without him.

Or can be like Hasek (not suggesting Pete is faking it...not trying to start a flame war) and say that you have a groin injury and miss the rest of the season and hang out in the dressing room.
