Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,
Like a lot of you out there, I’m torn. A big part of me wants to see Peter Forsberg come back and play again for the Avalanche. Another side of me doesn’t want him to end up looking like Johnny Unitas in a San Diego Chargers uniform.
Forsberg, in case you hadn’t heard, is attempting a comeback to the NHL at age 37. Matt Duchene, who played in the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, was 4 years old when Forsberg first came into the league.
Americans are suckers for a good comeback story, and it’s no different with me. And on paper, this one isn’t some far-out fantasy like, say, Jim Palmer trying to pitch again with Baltimore at age 46 or Mark Spitz trying to come back and dominate swimming 17 years after winning seven gold medals at the 1972 Olympics.
