You know Cliff Fletcher has to be sitting there, watching the surprise return of Peter Forsberg, hoping, probably praying, Mats “Go Down with the Ship” Sundin will have a similar change of heart.
The Avs could be getting ready to sizzle, of course assuming everyone stays healthy. Joe Sakic was back for Sunday’s dud of a game against the Oilers. It looks like Colorado GM Francois Giguere might be trying to re-assemble the 2001 Cup-winning team. Too bad Alex Tanguay isn’t available from Calgary, Adam Foote might be re-signed in Columbus, and Rob Blake wants to stay in LA. Of course, there’s still hope Ray Bourque can be lured out of retirement. He’s not even 50 yet.
Seriously, though. How crazy is Forsberg? Was he just messing with everyone? Can he really be that indecisive? I’m half-expecting him to call Giguere tomorrow, saying that now that he had the chance to sleep on it, he really wanted to be a Denver Bronco.
