The Latest Information to Hit My Desk
All this talk and speculation about Mats Sundin calling it quits is nothing but hogwash!
Hogwash I tell you! After all, didn't this same player retire about 15 times last season?
Sundin, who spent the majority of his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, after a brief stint in Quebec, went on to become their all-time points leader. After a summer that included more drama then a soap opera, Sundin finally chose the Vancouver Canucks as his next team.
He was offered a two-year deal by the Canucks, but most people don't understand that he didn't accept that offer and it was really just a one-year deal.
For that, Sundin is free to hit the market and the Calgary Flames will be his next destination.
A source very close to Darryl Sutter and Flame Management has confirmed that the team is, in fact, making a major play for him, especially since the hard-nosed Mike Keenan has been fired, and the team lost Mike Cammalleri to free agency.
The source has also told me that the team will be giving Sundin a strict deadline and we should see news of this very shortly.
Sundin to Calgary HRB rating: 4
