Money talks, Forsberg to Islanders?

Denver Post columnist Adrian Dater offers an interesting take on Forsberg and his unrestricted free agent status today.

There is nothing specific in this article from player, agent or any NHL source as to the Islanders contacting Foppa and many teams are included as interested in his services.

One person with intimate knowledge of Forsberg’s situation is that his agent, Don Baizley, wants to get one last good-sized contract for him. Let’s be clear about one thing: those who think Forsberg will take a hometown discount to return to the Avs are forgetting one big thing: he’s never done that before.

But what happens if the Islanders, having lost Ryan Smyth and a few others, offer him a three-year, $25 million deal? It could happen. Money always talks.
