Massive hilarity ensues at the fact that his salary stays on the books.

Also, is it sad that I'm finding it difficult to take his retirement seriously? I was legit saddened the last time it happened, now not so much.

What a screw-job to the Avalanche, I'm glad this guy is gone, but as it's already been said we will most likely hear about him next year near the TDL

What was the point of coming back if he couldn't handle it?

He isn't retiring, he's taking his talents to south beach.

So Colorado gave up 1 million in cap space for two games of Forsberg?

I don't get it either.
thought when Colorado signed him he would last longer than 2 games.

Don't ruin our impression of you Peter, so don't try another comeback. Just retire like the legend you are!

he has never retired before.

I would assume he was injured in the last game, or just realized he couldn't handle it.

Perhaps this thread would best fit under the "Confirmed Fail w/ Link" instead of its current heading.

This is the first time he's retiring... and I expect it to be the only one.

Man some people really just cant wait to bash Forsberg for some reason.
