The comments I have heard regarding Mats Sundin in the past few days have been disgusting, and they have all come from the arogant mouths of Leaf fans.
The friendship between Edmonton Oiler’s GM Kevin Lowe and Anaheim Ducks GM Brian Burke was ruined last year when GM Brian Burke was forced to decline to match an offer sheet made by GM Kevin Lowe for Dustin Penner because it would have put them over the Maximum Team Salary Cap. Dustin Penner signed a 5-year offer sheet from the Edmonton Oiler’s after the Anahem Ducks declined.
Its two days before the trade deadline, and their has been only three major deals–> stillman, and commodore to ottawa for eaves, and corvo to carolina and modry to philadelphia for a 3rd round draft pick in 2008 going to l.a. and jim vandermeer to calgary for a 3rd round draft pick in 2009 going to philadelphia.
When I moved from Boston to Toronto in 1979 I became a Leaf fan….after all I’m Canadian but after the Bruins I could never support Les Canadians- no offense- Habs fans but you know the history.
The New York Islanders have re-signed forward Trent Hunter to a five-year, $10 million contract extension. Hunter was eligible for unrestricted free agency in July.
The Minnesota Wild have re-signed defenceman Nick Schultz to a 6-year contract extension, totaling $21 million.
Toronto Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin has been asked to waive his no-trade clause.
All the stories about what will the old silver fox will do in TO and with all the articles about the Habs going big at the deadline, I decided to a) Have an article about what the options and scenarios for the best GM in charge of a canadian franchise could do and hopefully throw some water on the Hossa rumors cause quite frankly I really don’t want to see him in a Habs uni.
You guys just dont get it, do you.. I am so so tired of hearing all you talking heads left and right complaining about how its an injustice to leaf nation if Mats isnt moved by the deadline. I mean you guys are so ridiculously blind, its getting to the point where its borderline embaressing.. And thats no joke..
Here is a list of players who are the likely candidates to get moved by the trade deadline. I have also listed the reasons behind each probability.
