Mats Sundin: A Ranger or Canuck?
Total Pro Sports – Many hockey experts believe that Mats Sundin will be back on skates come Christmas, but does Mats even know where he’s going? We know he likes to play poker and recently signed on to play with Team Poker Stars as an International Celebrity Ambassador.
Sources out of Toronto and the Fan 590 radio station say that he will sign with the New York Rangers some time this week, claiming he has a verbal agreement with G.M. Glen Sather. This has also been reported by another reliable source from 103.5 another station owned by Rogers Communication in Toronto.
Other sources revealed that he just rejected a deal from the Philadelphia Flyers estimated at about 2 years, $16 million and another deal from the Chicago Blackhawks. Money terms of the Blackhawks deal were not released. Many believe that he does not know where he’s going yet, but has narrowed it down to the Vancouver Canucks, or the New York Rangers.
We think hands down Sundin will end up a Ranger, but what we don’t understand is why Mats Sundin wouldn’t allow Cliff Fletcher and the Toronto Maple Leafs to trade him last year at the trade deadline. He said he wanted to be true to his beloved Leafs and he would not accept any traded..
So instead of helping the Leafs rebuild and allow them to trade him to a contender for the Stanley Cup last year. Sundin did not resign with the Leafs this year and will now sign with a division rival in the East.
A spit in the face or a die hard Leaf? we’ll let you be the judge.
