SUNDIN UPDATE

According to the New York Post: Mats Sundin's first 2 teams of choice are the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers. If he were to choose 1 of those team then these would likely be the situations to follow.

If he signs with the Rangers: If Mats Sundin signs With The Rangers there will be a couple moves made to clear some cap space. In my opinion theres no way Sundin take 2 million to play.It would also mean they have given up on talks with Shanahan and we'd likely see him sign somewhere else.

If He Signs With Flyers: If Mats Sundin Signs With the Flyers this is what could transpire. In my opinion the Flyers are not as much a contender as the Rangers thats just my opinion. They also have 2 first line centers already. I think if he were to sign there they'd trade either carter or Upshall+ for a d-man. even though there in the same conference I could see the Flyers swinging a deal for Frantisek Kaberle.

BUT THERES ONLY 1 THING FOR SURE......WE AINT SEEN THE LAST OF THIS SWEDISH MEATBALL!

That is a complete article of lies. It's Montreal or Toronto, if you can't face the truth then so be it.

If Sundin signs with Philly would you do Carter for Bouwmeester?

Are there any rumors in NY on where Shanahan is going to end up ??? I am hearing St. Louis is the front runner.

Scotty said...

St Louis is front runner regardless of what Andy Strickland said, That does not meen he will sign there but at this minute they are front

I agree...Shanahan is a Great fit for St. Louis and their young forwards. Also, Shanahan is hoping to go into NHL Broadcasting after his on ice career is over. Seems as though John Davidson could give Shanny some great advise !

if sundin respects toronto like everyone says he does, he will NOT sign in philly. i don't see how philly even came into the race..

So I guess this totally ignores that the NYR have 2 capable centers already in Drury and Gomez. Granted they sign Sundin under the cap @ 2million, that means they would be paying 7+ million for a 3rd line center. Or they trade one, and then are without a 2nd line center again in 1-2 years when Mats is gone.

Or how about the fact that Philly is already 4.5 million OVER the cap?

Stupid speculation.

He got this info from the New York Post or Sportsnet. Dont blame him, he didnt make it up.

Dewey said...

That's true, this isn't made up, I read this on Yahoo! Sports. Don't kill the messenger.

^^^ Good point about the Rangers, they already have two top of the line centers. The Flyers are in the same boat, already spending a lot on centers Briere and Richards. I just don't see where Sundin fits into either situation.

This will never happen, Scotty take the position of Spector when you analyze crazy rumours from the likes of Larry Brooks and do this. Don't always take them as gospel and call Brooks out on it.
