The Forsberg Saga...

Have you heard the rumor?
Peter Forsberg is headed to < insert almost any team with with a Swedish player here >!
He may also be headed to < insert Colorado, Philly, or Nashville...ok not Nashville here > because he used to play there!

Let's face it people, even the most "inside" of "insiders" have no idea where Peter Forsberg wants to play if (when?) he chooses to return. So anybody (and this includes you, TSN) who speculates on the internet that Foppa Bear (Did I make that up or did I hear that somewhere? Google says I made it up) has a good chance of signing with a team (I think the last one was Vancouver because he's BFF with Naslund and his mom's coworker's second cousin is the neighbor of a friend of the Sedins's parents), give your head a shake.

Of course, I could be wrong, and for all I know Peter the Great (Wiki tells me I didn't make that one up) really is headed to Vancouver, but everyone must realize that it's the slowest time of the year for hockey news, and they'll hop on anything (even news from Bryan Murray's wife that Mr. Murray was muttering something in his sleep about talking to Foppa's agent), even if it isn't true, so it's not worth it to get your hopes up over it (No Columbus, Forsberg won't be coming to bring you to your first playoffs).

Besides, we all know that Forsberg is headed back to Colorado. You can't argue that because he used to play there, he has stated that he loves the scenery (I've heard from a trusted source), he's BFF with Sakic and Hejduk because they won Cups together (Ok, it's not plural with Hejduk, humor me), and of course.. oh wait. Darn, I could've sworn the Avs had a Swede somewhere on the pro roster. Oh well, back to the drawing board to find where No.21 will really play this year...


(Who wouldn't want this guy on their team?)

I went with something shorter, hopefully funnier, and much much harder to read. Hope someone out there likes it. :D

That was... interesting, lol

A little difficult to read, like you said, but it had it's moments

You forgot to add that he is leaving the NHL to play for his dad's team.

If that happened, do you think the other players fathers would complain about their sons ice time?

Avsfan19 said...

Hahaha, there may be a few fights between the dads, but what's hockey without the fathers of the players getting into heated arguments that result in a night in jail for a couple of them?

I didn't find it harder to read... am I missing something?

I found it an interesting blog, especially since the Foppa to Philly rumors have again heated up.

I have gone back and forth on wanting him after the soap opera of a year last season... But now that he is no longer required to be the savior here, I'd like to see him back here after Christmas or so... only at a reasonable prorated contract that fits under our tight cap.

Thanks for yet another interesting blog.

I feel the same way about Foppa to Colorado, FF. Only on a good contract, and only if he has both feet when he gets on the ice.
As for the hard to read thing, it's just all the parentheses that I wrote my thoughts in. :P

Anyone know what's up with HB?

Avsfan19 said...

It's having one of its routine downtimes where you can't do anything except stare at the frontpage.

Eggshmeg said...

It's better now. It wasn't even starting to load for me.

Ease up on the parentheses buddy :D
