Alex Tanguay to Wear No.13 for the Montreal Canadiens?

Miah D.Senior Writer IAugust 13, 2008

"His heart says Toronto. If it's about the money, it's Vancouver. Montreal is too close to Toronto. I think it's Toronto or Vancouver, but he's going to play." So says a Swedish-based reporter to the Vancouver Province.

Should we be reminded that the teams officially running for Mats Sundin's big signature (had it to be that big!) are the Montreal Canadiens, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Vancouver Canucks?

Should we be also reminded that Sundin apparently declared to the newspaper "Aftonbladet" that he would make his decision by the end of July or the beginning of August?

Meanwhile, it is time to prepare for the 2008-09 season.

Alex Tanguay surely wishes a Sundin-alike player for his new team. But had we searched for a bright side to all situations, a "negative" from the is-it-current-or-former Leafs Captain would give Alex Tanguay jersey No.13.

"I would really like to have the 13, but I think I'll wait for a few more weeks."

At least I am not the only one who has to wait. If we are lucky enough, we will hear from Sundin before little Hayden Latendresse hits the ice for his rookie year with the pros!

Supposing that Tanguay does not get the 13 (but who am I kidding here?!), he will sport No. 81.
