Forsberg Could Flourish

from Philly Burbs,
The greater curiosity, though, is the promise of what Forsberg will do. Under these new rules, in what presumably will be a freer-flowing style of play, he might have himself a season beyond even what the Flyers had hoped for when they signed him last month. "If they take away the 20 minutes of wrestling, yeah," Forsberg said Friday, after skating for the first time since the surgery. "There's a lot of penalties right now, but we have to stick to it. It's disrupting games right now, but the final result, we won't see until a couple of months into it, when the players learn the rules and what you can do. Then, we'll have a good game. ... "I've talked to the guys, and they said it's not that hard to play right now, not as physical, not as much grabbing and holding like it was before. They get back to the bench, and they're not that tired. Definitely, it's going to help."
