Is It Deja Vu With Mats Sundin?

The headline in the National Post is almost laughable: “Agent says Sundin’s NHL future will be decided soon” doesn’t that sound familiar? I mean this must be very hard on Mats, especially after last summer, he hasn’t been mentioned at all this summer. I mean after the summer of Mats last year he must be very jealous of Dan Heatley this summer.

““I’m going to talk to him about his future when I get there,” said Barry, of Calgary-based CAA Sports. “Hopefully, I’ll get a good idea where he’s at. He wants to hear about what Vancouver has to say. He really enjoyed his time there last season. He loves the city and the team.”


Barry must still be laughing all the way to the bank on the commission Mats paid him for half the season last year. I am sure he is going to “talk to him”. “Hey Mats, why not go for another 4-5m this season, hahahahhah”

The best part of the article:

“Barry said Sundin has received serious inquiries from “four or five” NHL teams, including the Canucks.”


Not just inquiries, but SERIOUS inquiries…. 🙂

I’m thinking J.P took a look at his home and said, you know, I could use a new deck, let’s call Mats and see if he wants to play again this year..

In all seriousness, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Mats takes until December to decide where he is going to play. I mean he is getting married. Then there will be a honeymoon and clearly he won’t be ready for training camp. So, in December he will decide which team he will play for. Why retire? Just don’t come back to Toronto 🙂

You can read the awesome article in the National Post about Mats Sundin’s impending decision on where to play next year here.

My biggest frustration last year was listening to every reporter say how they where tired of the Sundin saga, but then would spend 20 minutes talking about it. How hypocritical. If your tired of it then do not talk about something that has no legs. Im a huge hockey fan, and I did not need daily Sundin updates.

Lets just hope all the rest of the media outlets stay the hell away from this terribly old and stale news.

After last years rediculous debacle and all the bullshat we were fed from one story to the next, not to mention the spew coming from his agent alone and those brutal ‘decision time deadlines’…

Sorry to say but no one should really care about the future of Mats Sundin except for Mats. Period.

I was a Mats fan but i’m with Nealio….I just hope that if he makes the decision to play; he does so soon, trains appropriately so that he can go out on a positive note.

I hope he chooses a Bromma beer league for his swan song.

I pray that the media doesnt treat us to daily Sundin updates, followed by “I hate to have to talk about this”. Why the hell are you then if nothing changed?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
