Naslund Talking to Forsberg

TSN reports that Markus Naslund and the canucks have joined in on the Forsberg sweepstakes, a sweepstakes that includes many other teams.

A quote from TSN says that “In an interview with Vancouver radio station CKNW, Canucks captain Markus Naslund admits he has spoken to Forsberg and he is trying his best to get his former junior linemate to the Canucks.”
Naslund and Forsberg grew up together as childhood friends. Forsberg also has a relationship with the Sedin twins from when he played with them during the lockout. Forsberg recorded 55 points in 57 games with the Philadelphia Flyers and the Nashville Predators.

    I just finished commenting on this in someones last post there.Its believed that Nassy and Ohlund our strongly pursuing Forsberg and I think they will sign Forsberg for peanuts maybe some signing bonus's like couple million that would go towards the cap next season for the Nucks.Wouldnt be a bad signing he would sure help his good ol buddy Nassy play out I would hope,and maybe give some scoring help to the 2nd line and help the PP out.

    So we would have the top two runner ups (well one was the winner) of the 2003 NHL MVP, both are good friends, and have shown chemistry on the ice (not in the NHL of coarse). I think that MIGHT slightly slightly help Naslund regain his form. jk I think they would light it up if Forsberg stays healthy.

      Hate to say it but it seems like a pretty good fit.

    keep dreaming nucks fans. Foppa will be back where he belongs in due time.. right alongside Mr. Joe Sakic.

    Even with Forsberg, the Henrik, Daniel, Naslund and Ohlund they are not the most sweedish team, The Wings will still hold that claim with Zetterberg, Holmstrom, Samuelsson, Franzen, Lidstrom, Lilja and Kronwall, which is probably why Forsberg may end up their

    I doubt he'd sign for peanuts. he's making upwards of four million. Where? I dunno.

    Ever think that the only reason they might be talking to one and other is to get pointers on how to resurrect the 'nucks offense from life-support?

    yah yah AM 640 Toronto is saying that Fergie called Fosbergs agent and Sundin is pushing Forsberg to comeover!! Foppa is also friends with Alfredson. Friendship has no bearing in this case…. money talks.

    I think Forsberg is a big risk anyway.

    Wait till Sakic comes to Van City Next year during to off-season and retires as A Canuck.

    Wow surprise another team wants to sign Forsberg. I've got breaking news of another few teams that are interested in signing him:

    Tampa Bay
    San Jose

    Reason being why they're all interested and "have an edge" over every other team….they all have a swedish player on their team that grew up with Forsberg and are luring him to com e and play in their respective cities. And if they didn't grow up with him they played with him on a previous team and are "best buds" during the off-season.

    GAWD can we please stop talking about Forsberg!!!
