The latest on Peter Forsberg

Rumors around the league seem to indicate that Peter Forsberg will sign with either the Philadelphia Flyers or Colorado Avalanche. Forsberg has already turned down the Detroit Red Wings, Nashville Predators, San Jose Sharks, Pittsburgh Penguins, Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames.

The Chicago Blackhawks, Anaheim Ducks, Ottawa Senators and Vancouver Canucks, along with Philly and the Avs, remain on Foppa's shortlist. It was revealed in today's Vancouver Sun that GM Dave Nonis met Forsberg last July to persuade the Swedish forward to sign with the Canucks. Source

The St. Paul Pioneer Press wonders if new Minnesota Wild and ex-Nashville Predators owner Craig Leipold would make a run for Forsberg, with GM Doug Risebrough offering a smirk when asked about the possibility. Source
