Avs Get A Bargain

from Woody Paige of the Denver Post,

When he rejoined the Avalanche on Feb. 25, Forsberg signed a one-year, $5 million contract, with the pro-rated share actually only $1 mil.

It could turn out to be the deal of the century.

In the 16 regular and postseason games he’s played, the Splendid Swede has provided the Avs with 17 assists and two goals.

Against Minnesota, he had four assists and a goal, despite being a constant target for the Wild.

“I’m actually feeling better (physically) than I thought I would at the end of the series. There were a couple of real physical games in Minnesota, but these last two weren’t as physical. I feel good. I didn’t think I had that great of a series, but maybe I’ll do better.

“I think being the first team to (advance) in the Western Conference is a positive for us. If you’re going to play a lot of games, you want as much rest as you can get, and we’ll have a few days before we play again.”
