So Thursday appears to be the day that Mats Sundin will finalize his decision on whether he’ll play for the Rangers or the Canucks, “this according to a story out of Vancouver”:http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=259896&lid=sublink01&lpos=headlines_nhl.
”He’s going to make a decision Thursday about the final destination,” Gillis told reporters. ”We re-iterated our position in all of this and formalized our offer moving forward. We feel good about our team and where we sit and what we have to offer.
”We will see how it plays out.”
J.P. Barry, Sundin’s agent, heard Vancouver GM Mike Gillis’ tempting offer in person again today, but I go back to the idea that if Sundin has already taken it this far, he’s ready to become a Ranger.
As for those Rangers, expect Henrik Lundqvist in goal tonight, and the same lineup as Saturday night. If I hear anything different, I’ll pass it along.
