Bob McKenzie checks in with the latest on Mats Sundin, saying that “the Rangers haven’t made a formal offer to the center”:http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=259800&lid=headline&lpos=topStory_nhl, which we can all agree is kind of hard when the team doesn’t yet have much money to offer.
Once a four-team race, McKenzie now says the competition is squarely between the Rangers and Vancouver, making this the most heated battle between the two teams since the 1994 Cup finals.
Sundin’s agent, J.P. Barry is set to meet with the Canucks over a variety of topics tomorrow. The player, meanwhile, is headed home to Sweden until after Christmas.
Where exactly he’s headed once he returns West is the question…
