Peter Forsberg has decided not to try a return to the NHL this season (hat tip to Bob in Boulder), citing his obliterated ankles as the reason. It seems the human Barbaro just can't find a skate that fits.
At least that saves us all the inevitable d'oh! moment when he signs a $3 million contract to play 20 games and goes down in the second one he plays---out for the season. We could have had to suffer through that.
Peter, I hope you the best, and maybe you'll get to come back next year. Just remember that we all love you.
ADDENDUM: I never knew that Foppa wore a hearing aid. Anyone know anything about that?
