Forsberg a Ranger?

Eklund at is reporting that he has spoken with a source “very close to the situation” that says the New York Rangers may be Peter Forsberg’s #1 choice if he is to return to the NHL this season.

Eklund’s source says that Forsberg would “most like” to play for the Rangers, but that the Red Wings and Flyers would also be in contention.

The source also says that a signing with the Rangers or Flyers would be for Forsberg’s “personal reasons”.

Opinion: I’m not sure what personal reasons he would have to go to the Rangers. My only stab at what the connection would be is the fact that he and Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist are both Swedish, and he also has a past history playing with Chris Drury.
