Mike Gillis today ended speculation on whether Peter Forsberg would return to the NHL (this season).

From The Province:
"My understanding is Peter is going to stay and play in MoDo and he won't return to the NHL this year," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said. "He made it [the decision] because it's more of a day-to-day thing with his foot as opposed to a situation where he's confident he can play.

"I think it's a tribute to him that he didn't want to put himself in a position where he's taking a roster spot and not being an everyday player on an NHL team."

Rumor has it that Naslund might come out of retirement to play with Forsberg as they have wanted to play together during the NHL...could this come to fruition? We'll have to wait on and see on this one as it's still a rumor, but they two did have dinner together on Thursday night at the NHLPA's Goals and Dreams program...writing this I suddenly feel more like US Weekly...
