from Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post,
Forsberg told “Aftonbladet” he would play for Modo of the Swedish Elite League before deciding whether to jump to the NHL, perhaps sometime in December.
“He didn’t know what his (playing) status was and I left it that when he gets to that point let us know and we’ll talk,” Holmgren said.
Forsberg has since played a couple of benefit games with former Flyers teammate Simon Gagne in Sweden. Holmgren said Gagne told him Forsberg was “unbelievable” in the exhibitions.
Reuniting Forsberg to a vastly improved Flyers lineup is not a far-fetched proposition. Before he was traded to the Predators Feb. 15, Forsberg said he believed the Flyers could quickly rebound from the worst season in team history and be a Stanley Cup contender within a year or two.
