End in sight in the Sundin saga?

The Ottawa Sun is reporting that the end is finally in sight for the Mats Sundin saga.

It is speculated that Mats Sundin will be with a NHL team by December first. The article indicates that it is very unlikely that he will suit up for the Leafs once again as if he had an intention to return to the buds he most likely would have already taken their 7 million dollar offer.

Although there are many teams that are interested in Sundin the article makes it clear that teams may have to clear cap space by making trades or demoting players. It is also stressed in the article that both the Senators and the Canadiens may not be Sundins first choice due to the fact that they are major rivals of the Leafs.

    Big surprise!!!! Don't you see what's happening here?  Sundin is waiting to get clearance from the mafia.  Everything has to be approved by The Don.  Otherwise you'll end up like Tony Montana is Scarface.

    Interesting. Any last predictions?

    I don't know why, but I'm just feeling the Flyers. As much as it would pain me to see my favourite player in a Philly jersey.

    After hearing all the callers on AM640, Fan590 on the post game show after their win on Saturday, its clear that the leafs need to:
    1. sign sundin and shanahan
    2. they need to package their 1st rounder with stralman, steen and tlusty for kovalchuk and schnieder
    3. they can trade stajan, kulemin, coliacovo and their 2010 1st for gaborik.
    4. with sundin aboard, clearly forsberg will follow.

    this team can clearly win now and should abandon this crap of rebuilding. draft schmaft baby! 11 games as evidence is more than enough to prove clearly that the leafs are championship contenders and easily the best young team in the NHL.

    sorry for this outlandish sarcasm and exxageration. after hearing the comments last night it was night and day from saturday.

    its now trade kaberle, kubina, steen, stajan, toskala, antropov, ponikarovsky, mayers, hollweg, van ryn, white, coliacovo, frogren, moore, blake, bell and devereaux and get like about a million 1st rounders and everyone else's top prospects. we'll obviously too land both hedman and taveres. we need to rebuild!!! we're going NOWHERE. fire fletcher he's done a terrible job! hire burke!!

    ugh, its pretty sad stuff to hear. i dont know why most of leaf nation cant just take it easy and stay patient. we need not get too high or too low. our expectations shouldnt be all over the map. we have one goal, a stanley cup. not gunning for the 1st overall pick, not gunning for just a mere playoff spot.

    how we get to the ultimate goal is going to take time. its not going to happen over night, its not going to be won after one month. we knew this coming in that this was going to be a long drawn out process. we knew wilson had many habits to break and many things to change. we knew this was going to take time. right now we have to get better with each period, with each game. there will be plenty of bumps in the road. we'll have to endure until we grow out of it.

    there just isnt any purpose to start boasting all that well about a below .500 record after the 1st 10 games, nor get too upset after a really bad game, or that their goalie had a couple of bad games in a row. keep things in perspective people.

    One month into the season and still no big trade. I don't think I like this setup.

    billips for A.I was a huge trade. oh wait, wrong sport.

    Two words… ANAHEIM DUCKS!

    Don't forget that these are people calling a hockey radio show on a Saturday night. They're desperation for the Leafs to justify their existence is palpable. I mean would you take serious polical direction from someone calling into Alex Jones?
