Peter Forsberg Sweepstakes Over

UPDATE: It weren't over til the fat lady sang.

The Peter Forsberg sweepstakes are over and everybody is a loser. TSN is reporting that Don Baizley, Forsberg's agent, has begun advising teams that Peter is not confident enough with his foot to attempt a return.

He hasn't announced his retirement but it's seeming very unlikely that we'll ever see Peter Forsberg suit up for another NHL team.

With that thought in mind, here is the best Peter Forsberg tribute video I've ever seen - R. Kelly notwithstanding. It was created by Green lantern from the Avalanche forums shortly after Forsberg had signed with the Flyers after the lockout.

where does one get the idea to use R Kelly in a hockey video???

I'm guessing it was a search for lyrics with "World's greatest" in them and R. Kelly was the only serviceable option.

When I watched that video after the Forsberg-Philly signing, I must admit I got a bit misty eyed.
