Things are beginning to get interesting in Toronto where the decision on Mats Sundin is coming into focus. The Leafs management group has to decide what they’ll do with the face of the franchise. Do they let him walk and get on with the serious business of a re-build?
Or do they do what a good little Toronto management group would do: sign Mats to $7M, trade the lottery pick and bring in Terry Sawchuk from Winnipeg for one more go?
According to a tsn story, Sundin’s people met the Leafs people and it comes down to three options:
- Re-signing with the Maple Leafs at a reduced rate.
- Free Agency and a new home.
There is a fourth option: The Leafs upper management group makes a last minute call and offers the moon, sun and stars to Sundin to come back for one more go. They trade the lottery pick for immediate help on the wing and Toronto is once again God’s Town.
Don’t think it could happen? Have you been paying attention?
