Peter Forsberg Coming Back To Avs?

Avalanche Officials In Talks With Forsberg

7Sports has confirmed Peter Forsberg talked with Colorado Avalanche officials about returning to the team this season.

It has gone horribly wrong in Philadelphia and Forsberg wants to come back to the team he helped win two Stanley cups.

Forsberg left when the Avs decided they didn't have enough money to keep him. He signed a two-year $11.5 million deal with the Flyers but the general manager quit, the coach was fired and they're the worst team in the league.

Forsberg has also battled injuries all season long.

7Sports has learned Forsberg wants to be traded back to the Avs, but financials will play a big part. Avs would have to unload Jose Theodore and others to make cap room or Forsberg could re-sign after the season.
