Much Weeping at 5280

Peter Forsberg is leaving Denver.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced tonight they have signed the former Avalanche star to a free agent contract. A press conference is expected to take place Thursday announcing his addition to the Flyers, the team that originally drafted Forsberg.

Here at 5280 HQ, where female employees often scampered to the nearby coffee shop to watch Forsberg sip his lattes, there are many tears.
