One of the most hyped free-agent signings in not only the history of the Flyers, but in the history of Philadelphia sports as a whole.
Forsberg was supposed to be the savior, the one that led this team to the promised land and brought home a Stanley Cup.
In his first season, the Swede posted 75 points in just 60 games and things were all well and good on Broad St.
However, the relationship between player and management turned sour when the former Hart Trophy winner insisted on playing injured for his home country in the 2006 Winter Olympics.
As one would expect, this didn't exactly please the Flyers, and matters were made worse when Forsberg chose not to have reconstructive surgery on his right ankle in the winter of 2007.
It became painfully clear that things weren't working out, and Philly dealt their once-prized possession to the Predators in exchange for Ryan Parent and Scottie Upshall.
To add the cherry on top, the team finished with the league's worst record that season yet still lost the coin flip for the No. 1 pick in the draft.
That pick would go to the Chicago Blackhawks, who chose a fellow by the name of Patrick Kane.
