Forsberg to Montreal?

The Peter Forsberg watch has begun. It's reported that Forsberg is looking for a two-year deal worth about $2.5 million per season. While many teams are vying for Foppa's services, it would seem his old teams, the Colorado Avalanche, Philadelphia Flyers and Nashville Predators are the favourites to land the Swedish forward. Both Flyers GM Paul Holmgren and Predators GM David Poile have spoken to Forsberg's camp.

According to RDS, the Montreal Canadiens could be interested in Forsberg. Other teams that are believed to be in contact with Foppa are the Ottawa Senators, Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks, Detroit Red Wings and the New York Rangers into the mix. Source is reporting that executives or scouts from the Columbus Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks, Anaheim Ducks, Philadelphia Flyers, Ottawa Senators and Phoenix Coyotes reportedly took in Thursday's game in Tampa between the Vancouver Canucks and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

According to the Buffalo News, the Dallas Stars have interest in Edmonton Oilers centre Jarret Stoll.

I hope the Habs stay far of Forsberg. He's been a distraction for his team these past 2 years and didn't help them much in the playoffs as the Flyers (2006) and Preds (2007) didn't even make it past the 1st round. Moreover, his foot is still a problem...
