NHL and Hockey Rumors for Dec 17, 2008

Peter Forsberg wants to play in the NHL one more time, and according to the Denver Post, wants to play in the playoffs with the Colorado Avalanche. Forsberg added that he will quit hockey if it doesn't work out this time. Brochu's take: At least this will save us endless speculation as to where he would play, which was the case for the 2007-2008 season. Source

TSN's Darren Dreger reports that Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke will make his first trade as soon as the NHL's holiday roster freeze ends on December 27. Dreger speculates it could be for more toughness in the lineup, or a legitimate enforcer. Brochu's take: Not really rumors, and not really much more than what everyone else knows.
