He was used in more of a depth role last season, but before that he played nearly 3 straight full seasons with LA. There’s certainly some experience there. Big body on the right side for $1M. Hard not to like this deal for the Jets.

Obviously the Jets are planning on Heinola and Samberg playing on the team...so they get Forbert and Beau just in case....and pick someone up at the TDL

Forbort picked a bad year to get hurt. When healthy, he can play on the 2nd pairing in a punch.

Too bad none of you know be is a actually the worst defenseman in the NHL.

I rather have Jack Johnson in my top 4 than Forbort in my bottom pair. This guy sucks ass and I had to watch him for 4 straight years. People wonder why Doughty "sucks" its because he was paired with this bum for almost 4 straight years. Doughgy is the only reason this guy ever had decent numbers. But watching him, get ready to see very stupid decision making, lots of turn overs, zero physicality, and lots of goals against when he's on the ice. He's the most frustrating player I've ever watched in my entire life. I rather watch peewee B than watch this guy. He belongs in the ECHL. How he remains in the NHL is beyond me. Probably bc of Doughty or made Joakim Ryan look like a top pairing dman last year.

Called this one! I like the signing, solid depth move and brings a physical presence to the blue line. Good value too.

Pretty much everyone I know that’s a Flames fan hated him by the end of this season 😅

Great signing. Depth dmen and someone you can move up from the third pairing in case of injury.
