Forsberg = Favre?

from Jason Brough of Olrand KurtenBlog,

Let’s get back to the article in question, which starts out by saying how the NFL is more popular than the NHL. And I have no problem with that - the NFL is more popular than the NHL

But then comes this part:

North American hockey has many reasons to look up to its pigskin counterpart, but something the league doesn’t need is a joke similar to the one a certain crocs-wearing quarterback has unleashed offseason after offseason in the NFL.

The league is close to having its own Brett Favre in the form of 37-year-old Peter Forsberg, a massively talented player that could be remembered as one of the all-time greats but refuses to acknowledge his days of skating with the big boys are over.

Not at all.  Favre was able bodied and unable to determine whether he wanted to keep going.

Forsberg has always wanted to continue playing, his body just won’t let him.
