The 38-year-old Swede is said to be in negotiations with the Canucks and could sign a contract valued in the neighborhood of $2 million to be the team’s second-line centre. Vancouver may be prepared to make a trade if it is necessary to fit Sundin under the salary cap, if necessary.
“Mats enjoyed his time in Vancouver last season and is looking forward to playing with the team this year,” a source told Sportsnet.ca.

Well, here’s a news flash, the odds of Sundin playing at all are very slim.

JP Barry, Sundin’s agent responded to a report Sundin is in negotiation with the Canucks with a strong denial.
“There have been zero negotiations with Vancouver or any team for that matter,” Barry told TSN.
