The longest soap opera of the NHL season may finally be coming to a conclusion as Peter Forsberg has chosen a short list of teams for his return.
The Ottawa Sun is reporting that Ottawa is on the shortlist but the frontrunner is still believed to be Philadelphia.
Despite the list, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is still unsure of whether or not Forsberg is truly committed to returning to the league.
"I honestly don't have a feeling for what his decision will be and I didn't get to see him skate," Holmgren told the Sun. "From talking to him, I am not sure he is ready in his own mind. He doesn't seem to know if he's okay. When he's ready, he'll make a decision."
