Kukla's Korner Hockey

Worse Than Iverson

from Martin Frank at Delaware Online,

Talk about selfish: Forsberg refused to take part in a shootout earlier this season to decide a game against the Rangers for some unexplained reason. Nice example for a so-called captain to set.
Talk about hurting coaches: When Ken Hitchcock was fired after the Flyers got off to a 1-6-1 start this season, Forsberg’s response: “I don’t think Hitch is a bad coach, but sometimes when a team is not performing as it should, it’s good to get a change.”...
Talk about not setting the right example: Forsberg essentially held the Flyers hostage for weeks, hiding behind a foot injury and refusing to commit to the team for the long term, though it begged him to stay.
But Forsberg didn’t want to stay. He waived his no-trade clause. Why couldn’t he have said that three weeks ago when it obviously was his intention?
