Peter Forsberg is back – with Colorado.
Pierre McGuire, on Mitch Melnick’s show this afternoon, says this will start an "arms race" in the Western Conference. Anaheim, San Jose, Vancouver and Detroit will try to make moves.
On the Marian Hossa front, McGuire – stressing that he was speaking hypothetically – said Canadiens would have to give up a roster play of Christopher Higgins’ calibre plus Ryan McDonagh or Alexei Yemelin and one or two draft choices.
I think Hossa is going to Ottawa.
