As we moisten our loins in anticipation of tonight's reminder to Mats of why he probably should have waived his no trade clause, we would like to take a moment and congratulate Peter Forsberg on his miraculous recovery from his debilitating injury.
The Colorado Avalanche have won the 'Peter Forsberg sweepstakes', signing the centre to a one-year deal to return to the team for the rest of the season.I'm sure I speak for a majority of Senators fans when I wish you all the best, Foppa. You could have had it all, but you turned us down, while hiding behind a weak ass excuse about "not feeling ready". That said, I have the sneaking suspicion that you may miss us more than we'll miss you. But please, by all means, do enjoy the first round. Cock tease.
On another, much happier note, there is something rather exciting coming down the pipe for your humble scribe. While I don't want to give too much away for fear of jinxing it (kind of like uttering the word "shutout" in a scoreless game), here's a hint.
Go Sens Go!
