Canucks and Beyond
by Alanah McGinley on 07/01/08 at 04:30 PM ET
From the wild world of hockey rumors, Bruce Garrioch reports:
The Vancouver Canucks are after Mats Sundin. League sources told Sun Media the Canucks have offered the Toronto captain a two-year, $20 million deal.
Sundin hasn’t decided on his future, but he’s contemplating it.
Fan590’s Howard Berger just mentioned the same thing. (thanks to readers for sending this one in!)
12:05pm PT: That Vancouver is the team that offered this deal to Sundin is also now being reported on TSN television.
3:22pm PT: J.P. Barry, Sundin’s agent, states on FAN590 that his client has received nine offers today which he’s considering. He states that money is not the most important factor (clearly, if he’s hesitating at this insane Canucks offer) and that Toronto is also still a possibility. Barry also says that Sundin isn’t certain he will return to the NHL at all yet, which is part of what’s taking him some time to figure out.
