Peter Forsberg to join the Avs tomorrow!! Fleischmann done for season.
Forsberg will begin practicing with the team tomorrow
Huge news after bad news.. One of the greatest Avs to ever play is making another comeback and will be skating with the team starting tomorrow! The news was just announced today after last nights 5-1 loss to the Predators. It was also a bad night for the Avs after it was found out Thomas Fleischmann would be gone for the season with pulminary emboli. Sad news for the Avs and Thomas, but they caught it before it could become more serious and possibly lead to sudden death
Then today the Denver Post has reported that Forsberg will skat at practice tomorrow morning to see if a comeback is in the cards. Big 24 hours as an Av fan. Officially right now, he has not signed a contract but will begin practicing with the team tomorrow morning. After the skate, there will be a press conference where the media will be able to question both Forsberg and the Avs Vice President. We will have to see how the skate goes for him and whether it leads to something or not. I for one am assuming that if he does decide to play it will be with the Avs since he will be practicing with the team. I couldn't see how the Avs would allow this if there wasn't some verbal agreement that if he decides to give it a go, that it would be with the Avs. The Avs desperately need some player after the loss of Fleischmann. Currently the Avs have no top LW for either their first or second line. If this isn't corrected some how, I can't see the Avs making the playoffs. We will see what happens but the next two days could be big!
