Peter Forsberg was a very brave player with a huge heart. "Not a inch back" was his motto. The downside of his physical playing style were many injuries. His balance, passing and skating skills and his ability to cover the puck were a tough challenge for the defensemen of the opponent. He had an ability to see the entire playing field and give winning, goal-leading passes to free linemates.
