There are not many players in the world who can take a year off and be a point per game player. Forsberg is one of them.
Cripes...when the signing was announced I had visions of 15 minutes per plus power play time for the guy. He's been awesome.
Also...I really thought that he and Statsny were too much alike to be effective...whoops! Their savvy meshes perfectly, and Hejduk has been reaping the rewards.
I'm glad he's back and all, just thought he shouldn't be on the list of players on that link
hopefully he can play in all the playoff games. The Avs are a different team without him. More importantly, if Ryan Smyth can regain his scoring touch, maybe the Avs can afford for Forsberg to take a night off or two.
