My message to Forsberg...

In all seriousness, even though he played with the "enemy" when the rivalry was more heated, in the end I don't have all that much against him, but you just got to wonder how he can keep this up. Eventually your body is going to tell you no, it's time to give it up.

Eventually? It's been telling him that for years now.

Time to retire, Floppa. With Fleischmann out for the remainder of the season, it is looking more likely..

In terms of style of play, Forsberg is nothing like Crosby or Datsyuk.

Well there's really no one you can compare him too, he's such a special player. But Crosby and Dats both have aspects of their game which remind me of him.

The Brett Favre of hockey...


Forsberg makes Farve look like a rookie retiree. Did his destroyed ankle miraculously recover?

This guy really doesn't know when to quit. Is he hurting for cash or does he really kid himself enough to think his 3rd comeback will work? There has to be some other motive besides the love of the game.

I admire his passion for the game, and I think it's up to Forsberg to decide when it's time to hang em up.

There is. Jagr is exactly like him. Leino is a lite-version. Big frame shielding the puck well, making plays, while not having blazing speed.

Good for Peter. I hope he can make it work.

Also, f**k all the haters. He never retired in the first place. You have no idea how he feels. Hockey is his passion and he loves the game and wants to play. Who are you to tell him when to retire? Go back to your caves.

Money isn't an issue. I think he's made more money on real estate investments in Sweden than he ever did playing the game...

EDIT: IF he actually makes a comeback; would he have to clear waivers like Nabokov?

Seems to be a lot of hate for a player who is hurting nobody but himself in this comeback. Props to him for wanting to continue to play in the NHL and prove himself, but I highly doubt it will turn out well. I didn't think he could stay healthy in the SEL or in general, I don't know how he thinks he can last in the NHL years older, and out of the game. Hell it seems like players from KHL or SEL have taken a while to adjust after only being out a year, I don't know how a player gone for 3 years with major surgeries can be much better.
There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

he isn't like brett favre at all, forsberg is a guy who is just down on his luck with his foot, Favre is a rockstar drug head football player who can't make up his mind

good for forsberg
hopefully he does well.

this just goes to tell you about his true love and compassion for the sport of hockey. all he wants to do is go out and play. money isnt the issue right now. hes at the end peak of his career just let him go out and have fun and do what he loves. its not like he cheapshotted anyone or shattered someones nhl career.

now if we were talking about Marty McSorley.... :ph34r: :ph34r:

Jagr is a decent comparison, didn't mention him since he's not in the NHL anymore. I always saw Jagr as more of a goalscorer than playmaker but other than that they do have similarities.

Leino? Well a very, very lite version then ;)

Worse than Farve.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Well we all know how this story ends.

I don't mind him trying to come back, and I don't think he's Favre. His foot troubles (and spleen) forced him into early retirement. It was really too bad because love him or hate him he was entertaining and fun to watch (or root against).
If he plays with the Avs for a bit, I am likely to pick up some tiks and go down and watch. Doubt he can last very long though.
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!
