Mats Sundin is one of the many players that are still looking for a place to play next season. But what teams could use the 38-year-old Swede?
The Toronto Maple Leafs' all-time leading goal and point scorer ended his 13-year career with the Leafs when he signed a one-year deal with the Vancouver Canucks last year.
However, he signed midseason and only played the latter half of the 2008-09 season.
Despite being a consistent point-producer during his time with the Leafs (he had at least 70 or more points in 12 of his 13 seasons and led in points in every season but one), he was unable to find that same touch with the Canucks.
In 41 games, he scored only nine goals and finished with 28 points. His plus/minus was also a minus-five.
Even though he was less than successful in Vancouver, I think that if Sundin were to find the right team, he could have at least one more good season before he retires.
The following are some teams that can afford him (if he were to be paid $5 million like last year, although it is clear he deserves far less after his performance this past season) and that could use some veteran leadership and some added offense.
