Foppa Not Signing

I know the season isn’t over, but I’m ready to weigh in with the least surprising announcement of the 2007-08 season: Peter Forsberg isn’t coming back to the NHL this season. I’d be shocked if he ever returned to the NHL. I don’t get the feeling his foot will ever be 100%.
Also, Chris Botta, the Islanders’ vice president of media relations has a nice blog. Sunday, he had an interesting entry about how the NHL keeps saying media accessibility is the key to hockey reaching a wider audience. Botta points out there are few, if any, professional sports that provide more/better media accessibility, and it doesn’t seem to be working.
