Sundin to Habs, not so fast
According to various reports, C Mats Sundin of the Toronto Maple Leafs may not being going to play for the red white and blue in Canada, but rather the red, white and blue in New York.
There are contradicting reports out that Habs GM Bob Gainey will not fly to Sweden to talk to the all-star center. Instead, Sundin will wait out until July 1st or after to sign a deal.
According to TSN, the New York Rangers appear to be his more desired team than the Montreal Canadiens. The Rags are in need for some forwards after letting go Brendan Shanahan, Martin Straka and possibly Jaromir Jagr.
Matt's Take: I bet Sundin ends up in Detroit. They have a good amount of cap space, and Detroit is right near Toronto. Also, the Red Wings are cup contenders and that is what Sundin is after. I don't see his going to the rival Habs as a icon of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
