Mats Sundin Update x1000

I just arrived back in Vancouver on Friday, and spoke to a couple of my sources fairly close to the whole Sundin situation and here’s what I gathered from what they told me.

- Sundin listened to the New York Rangers final pitch this weekend, and they basically asked him to play for a lesser amount in exchange for a legitimate shot to win the Cup.
- Mats hasn’t hinted to anyone where he’s going to play, and it’s very likely that he still doesn’t even know.
- Money may be a bigger factor than most of us have been led to believe.
- Mats will weigh out all of his options in the next few days (apparently there are still 6 teams which remain very interested) and his final decision should come some time next week.

Stay tuned.
