Glory days revisited, or best to leave the past alone?

I must admit that my initial reaction to hearing that Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote were traded back to the Avalanche was one of excitement. How could you not be excited to have two of the stars that helped propell your team to 2 Stanley Cup victories?

Initial results look like Foote is picking up where he left off. Since joining the team two games ago he has been a solid contributor and make some difference-making plays. The bigger question has to do with Forsberg's health. He has been plagued by injuries to his ankles among other areas since his final days in Colorado. Is he going to be able to contribute to a run for the Cup? Will his mere presence inspire the rest of the team to greater play? Rumor is that he might make his debut today vs. LA. I long for the glory days again, and hope they begin tonight.
UPDATE: Turns out Peter didn't play until the Vancouver game tuesday night. He looked great and IMO is well on his way to getting back into playoffs form.
