Forsberg Staying?

1) Flyer's star forward Peter Forsberg is to meet with GM Paul Holmgren today to discuss the oft injured Swede's future. Its speculated that Holmgren will ask Forsberg to waive his no trade clause allowing the Flyers to attempt a trade of the soon to be UFA.

2)We're also told that Peter will come right out and be frank with Holmgren today. As has been our position all along, our sources tell us they don't believe that Peter has changed his mind. That he will NOT allow the Flyers to trade him to a contender before the trade deadline. Forsberg will tell Paul that he intends to instead use the extra time off to try to finally heal the many injuries he has suffered through this season, and then decide if he wants to return to the NHL next year.

3) Our source also tells us the Swede would like to return to the Flyers IF he was to return to North America next season. "Right now that's a 50:50 proposition" , our source confided. More on this as it develops
