Holmgren Dispels Forsberg Rumor

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers
(January 25) - Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren on Thursday said the following about a report involving center Peter Forsberg talking with the Colorado Avalanche about a possible return to his old team from the Flyers.

"Colorado is a team that has asked about [Peter Forsberg], and our stance all along has been that when we get to that point with Peter, we will get to that point. But, we haven't gotten to that point.

"I have talked to Peter a few times but not about a) whether he wants to be traded and b) if he does, where do you want to go? So, our focus has been with getting his skate/foot issues fixed and possibly doing something with the Flyers on a longer term. All of this other stuff, in my opinion, is a bunch of nonsense stirred up by whoever."
