Peter Forsberg: Best Player In The NHL When Healthy

Earlier this season, I picked Roberto Luongo as the best player in the NHL. I stand by that claim, although I believe that when he is healthy, Peter Forsberg of the Philadelphia Flyers is the best player in the NHL.

Forsberg is a good player with a proven track record. He led the NHL in scoring in 2002/03 and won the Hart Trophy. So far this year, he is leading the NHL in scoring and would have to be considered an early Hart candidate. He has had instant chemistry with new linemate Simon Gagne, who is the leading goal scorer in the league, thanks largely to Forsberg setting him up.

Peter Forsberg has had several injuries throughout the last few years missing significant time in the 2001/02, 2003/04 and lockout 2004/05 seasons. There is a good chance that Forsberg will suffer an injury before the season is out and miss some time. If he doesn't, Forsberg will have a very good chance at winning the scoring title and/or the MVP.
