Justin from The Avalanche Guild, The Goalie Guild and Mile High Sports Radio was present at this morning’s skate with Peter Forsberg, and he has some very positive things to say about the results.
Overall, if things continue to stay positive as far as how he feels, I won’t be surprised if he goes through with one final comeback and finds a way to play 20+ games this season in an NHL uniform. And if that happens, odds are strong that he’ll do it in an Avalanche uniform.
Step one for Peter the Great’s return to Denver and a Colorado uniform (again) seems to be in the books, and initial signs give Avs fans hope that he can be a contributor this season. It’s still a long road, and many practices, before Forsberg is deemed fit enough to sign a contract with Colorado, but this is a good first step.
Keep in mind that since Forsberg has yet to play professionally this season, the Avalanche can sign him directly without placing him through waivers for other teams to claim, if that situation does arrive.
Make sure to read the entire article for an in-depth review of the skate-around, it’s a must-read for any Colorado Avalanche fan.
