Forsberg going to Toronto?

Sportsnet's Jim Kelley recently posted a blog entry here that suggests Forsberg is most likely to end up in Toronto or Montreal before the trade deadline.

Hmmm, interesting thought. Obviously, the Leafs would have to make some cap room to accomodate Forsberg (bye bye Tucker) but Mats Sundin would likely help convince Peter that he wants to come to Toronto.

He would likely be a rental player but if this possibility means that the Leaf's trade Tucker then I'm all for it. Don't get me wrong, I like Darcy Tucker, but his trade value will never be better than it is right now... assuming he returns from his foot injury ASAP. Let's get some young talent and/or some picks for him now since it is unlikely that we will be able to afford resigning him this summer.

Interesting thought no? I'm not sure which possibility excites me more, getting Forsberg or realizing some value out of Tucker's career season.
