Is it at all possible? The Leafs, from what I'm gathering, are at about the $41.9 million mark under the cap. Knock off Peca's salary at $2.5 million, and there is a bit of cash floating around in Leafland to absorb half of Forsberg's $5.75 million salary.
So yes, it is possible. But that depends. Will they sign Tucker at a higher price before the deadline? If yes, then no Forsberg. How are the Sundin negotiations?
Can we assume that John Ferguson Jr is smart enough not to sign an injury-prone Forsberg and roll the dice at such a critical time? No..see the signings of Jason Allison and Eric Lindros last season.
Either way, it's something that I could fantasize about. It also gave me an excuse to put Forsberg's head on top of Robert Reichel's on a hockey card! That gave me great satisfaction!
