Flyers Need To Stay Away From Forsberg

from Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post,

It is difficult to gauge how much a healthy Forsberg would command on the open market, but since the Colorado Avalanche paid him $1.1 million last season for 42 days, it’s a safe bet the Flyers could get him for about the same price.

Which begs these three questions: Why? Why? Why?

In his prime, Forsberg was an absolute force capable of winning playoff series by himself. But that was 10 years ago, before he signed with the Flyers in 2005 and began a three-year injury odyssey that included abbreviated stops in Nashville and Colorado, along with countless trips to foot surgeons and skate manufacturers.

Since having his foot surgically reconstructed in the summer of 2006, Forsberg has played in 66 NHL games in 2 1/2 seasons. After signing with the Avalanche late last season, he played in only nine of their 18 games and missed three more playoff games….

But does anyone really believe Forsberg will be anything more than a distraction on a team that has its best chemistry in years?
