Peter Forsberg is not coming back to the NHL this season.
Or at least it's highly unlikely, according to his agent, Don Baizley.
"The prospect of Peter having enough confidence in the foot-skate issue to commit to being able to play in the NHL this season isn't where it needs to be at this moment," Baizley told TSN. "As a result, teams are being told it is unlikely he will be able to commit to return to the NHL this season."
You know, if it weren't for the beautiful cities, awe inspiring scenery, fjords, first class health care system, incredibly responsive social programs and insanely hot women, Sweden would have a hell of a lot to answer for.
So...looks like we'll have to go to Plan B. Anybody else know where I can find a gifted Swedish scorer with unimpeachable leadership skills, currently mired on a last place team and in the twilight of his career who deserves one last shot at a title? Anybody? Anybody at all?
