NHL notes: Forsberg deadline nearing

first_imgThe closer a decision on Forsberg drags to the Feb. 27 trading deadline, the more it appears that he does not want to be labeled the bad guy. Some teammates predict he will allow the Flyers to make the primary decision. All hail the `Chief’: The Boston Bruins completed the hat trick for John “Chief” Bucyk, giving the Hall of Fame forward a third night in his honor to commemorate his 50th anniversary with the team. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Tuesday that if center Peter Forsberg, an unrestricted free agent this summer, asked to be traded to a Stanley Cup contender or if the Flyers traded him because he wouldn’t commit to re-signing, they had a plan in place. “We can move quickly,” Holmgren told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Let me rephrase that. We’ve done enough (talking). We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. But we would have a decision to make.” center_img The last Bruins captain to skate with the Stanley Cup, Bucyk was given a gold watch by current captain Zdeno Chara before Boston’s game against the Edmonton Oilers. “It’s very exciting. I never thought there was another thing they could do for me,” Bucyk said. “I’ve had two nights already, they had my number retired, I’m in the Hall of Fame and now this.” Bucyk was also honored in 1968, when the team feared he might have to retire because of a back injury. But he stuck around and, along with Bobby Orr, led the Bruins to the 1970 and ’72 Stanley Cup championships. A second night was dedicated to him in 1980, when his No. 9 was retired; a year later, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Sabres’ Connolly slowed by leg injury: Tim Connolly will miss at least a week of workouts because of a leg stress fracture, the latest setback for the Buffalo center who’s missed nine months with concussion-related headaches. Coach Lindy Ruff said tests revealed a broken bone below Connolly’s knee. last_img
