Its strange because he said he would decide 2-3 weeks after the last game with Modo. Im almost 100% sure I heard him say that. Maybe we can expect some news soon.
EKLUND POSTED THIS LAST NIGHT
Forsberg's Stress Fracture has Healed.
Talking to sources, Peter is again working out at his home rink, before deciding whether to return to Modo or the NHL. There are rumors that he could play in the Swiss league, but according to my sources he will "just work out at the home rink in Ornskoldsvik and decide where to go from there."
Peter is very optimistic about how everything feels right now and is skating pain free and better than he has felt in years. The stress fracture was said to be unrelated to his previous injuries to the same foot...Well I guess that's hard to say. So many procedures on his foot surely has taken a degree of toll, and when you fix one thing how can you be sure that new problems won't arise?
I know people are likely tired of Peter Forsberg injury reports. Well so is he according to a source close to him, but the source also was sure to note that this attempt feels different...
(from an email) "Pete really feels a source of energy and his love of the game has never been stronger. I would find it very hard to imagine him not returning to the NHL this season."
The other fact that can't be denied is that he was tearing it up for 3 games with Modo, hitting, skating and creating his patented plays like never before. Peter also wants a chance at a Cup and would only come back to a team he felt had that possibility. He has a huge love for the 3 cities in which he played, and Philly would be interested if he is healthy (I am told), while you know he is closely watching this great start by the Avalanche...
Per aftonbladet Peter Forsberg is going to play for Sweden during a exb. tourney "Karjala Cup" which I think is going to be played in november.
Apparantly some KHL teams is ready to offer loads of money for a Forsberg signing, if he's ready to play. He would be risked to be called greedy though if he would opt for the KHL. Not that the KHL is a bad leauge, its better than the SEL, but still...
