Forsberg to Nashville

New, comment

There's been talk, there's been posturing, and there's been more hype than it deserves but Peter Forsberg was finally traded tonight from the Philadelphia Flyers to the Nashville Predators for... for...

Just plain, flat out, too friggin' much.

Yes, you want your team in the best position to make a run at Lord Stanley's Cup, but you do not compromise the long term viability of the franchise by going for one player who's status in the league is always at question due to injuries, homesickness and the like.

I like Peter Forsberg, don't get me wrong, but in the new NHL -- Peter isn't worth this much of an investment.
