Remember when "E" slipped out the back door during the Stanley Cup finals? Well last night, after single-handedly sabotaging his young team's third-period comeback with a slew of penalties that left his team searching for a tying goal while shorthanded, Forsberg did the same thing.
The grass isn't always greener on the other side, eh Peter?
He had to know that going to Philly was going to be a much different atmosphere than what he knew here in Colorado. Here he was basically bulletproof from criticism. The fans and media rarely took him to task for anything, other than to say that he was constantly injured. Now he's in Philly, where the fans and media are much more demanding and much more brutal if things go poorly. Wearing that C on his the front of his jersey isn't helping matters, but then he never should have been given it in the first place.
