08:39 AM ET 01.26 | Complicated somewhat by the NHL's All-Star break, Peter Forsberg's return continues. Forsberg was again the focus for fans and media at Avalanche practice Tuesday, his fourth time on the ice with the team since beginning an NHL comeback attempt. But remaining the ever-mysterious Swede, Forsberg gave few clues about whether his comeback was going to work. "I'm not trying to think about anything yet. I'm just going to keep on skating, keep on working and see where I'm at," Forsberg said. "I've only had two [regular team] practices. They were quick, they were fast, and it's going to take at least a couple more days to adjust. We'll see what happens after a couple more practices."

Forsberg return remains mystery

It would be much appreciated if the media could be convinced of this.

Not even close...

"I'm just going to keep on skating, keep on working and see where I'm at" Then he's going to make a decision after a few more practice sessions. Makes sense to me.

If I had to bet, I'd guess he was going to retire pretty soon. Foot injuries are especially chronic in a lot of cases. Especially at his age.

Is he sending you dirty pics of himself?

Maybe its the best hes been. I dont remember him actually skating with an NHL during any of his comeback attempts. He must feel good about to be skating with the team.

Good stuff.

"I'm not trying to think about anything yet." Forsberg said.

Did he go to the Poison Dwarf school of thought?

No offense, but this isn't news unless he actually MAKES it onto the team. The only person with more reported second comings than this guy is Jesus!

January 26, 2011  10:28 AM ET

Whoo boy, now that the All Star break is upon us, I guess we can expect a daily dose of Forsberg updates again. What a thrill. I'm cheering for him, but if he doesn't make it this time, I hope he shuts it down for good.

Not a fair comparison at all and two entirely different personlities. Forsberg is not entirely different from your Mario who came back from retirement a couple of times.

a valid point
