@kuklaskorner

Forsberg Signing With Avalanche: via Adrian Dater of the Denver Post, Peter Forsberg's answer is yes.

Forsberg, the longtime Avalanche star, has decided to play for the Avs and is expected to sign a contract today and travel with the team to Phoenix. Forsberg took part in today’s practice with the team, then announced he will play with the team. He is not expected to play tomorrow in Phoenix, however.

And Jagr mentioned in an interview he plans to consider the NHL over the summer.

If he can make a decent contribution, more power to him. Not holding my breath though.

Sigh... I hate this comparison. Forsberg's been at it longer.

yeah but forsberg has also had to leave because of injuries not ego.

Can't wait to see Federov comeback next, perhaps Sundin would like to give a go. Hell maybe Yzerman can help Stamkos on the ice as well. (Sorry couldn't resist)
There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

Too bad he didn't have to pass through waivers first. I'm sure someone would have stamped him...

I'll never forget when this stupid jake joined them in 2008 and we had that playoff series against them. Classic.

This doesn't change anything in the West. They're still a big underdog compared to the other teams in the Conference.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

This is going to flop, he was just saying this summer that he could not use his ankle for competative sports anymore.
30 games and then a position with the club, like Chelios, Conroy, etc....

OK, so let's begin.

What's the over/under on how many games he plays before he's injured? :D

I say 8 games.

Floppa has returned to the Divealanche. The 90s are back! I think I'll put on my NSYNC cd, go watch an episode of Seinfeld, and wonder if Bill Clinton can get re-elected, all the while finishing up my Algebra II - Trig homework.

How many games until he gets injured for the rest of the season?
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.
