"We've been talking about turning it around for a long time now," Forsberg said. "New start, new coach, everything. We've had a lot of chances to turn it around."
Now, we all know that Naslund and Forsberg can rip it up together, and there has been numerous rumors about them wanting to play together, hence the Naslund for Gagne trade rumors.
We lack the secondary scoring, and no matter what kind of a slump Forsberg is in, his skill set is still there, and could definitely give us a big boost. And may just be that one thing that will bring us the cup.
How will we do it? We gotta pull the trigger NOW, or else towards the deadline, another team will pick him up. He's listed as 5.75m and will be an UFA after this season's over.
Not going to go through the billion possible combinations, but with this pickup and possibly freeing up some cap space for next year, assuming we don't resign Forsberg, which we can use a lot in resigning Salo, and finding a RW.
This is a real stretch, and probably won't happen, but could we just imagine?
5 Swedes! We could fit them all onto a power play unit!
