Sportsnet sources: Sundin decision by December 25th

So they say:

A source has told Hockeycentral that he will narrow the list of potential teams down to two or three this week.

Once the list is compiled, another round of meetings with management from those clubs is likely to follow.

Sundin is expected to make a decision on a team by December 25 at the latest, and would join the club around December 28.

The reason for the delay is the NHL roster freeze between December 19 and 27, which prevents players from being waived, traded or loaned. The club that would acquire Sundin would likely need to move a player to create salary cap space.
We shall see. I cannot wait for this debacle to be over with.
Last week his agent JP Barry was pushing for December 15th. That was obviously to beat the roster freeze. That could still be a possibility.
Yes, the Sundin frenzy is now taking off again. Most people are either angered or do not care (or both) anymore. I do. I have been a big Sundin fan for a long time now.
Hockeyexpressen has a Sundin story up as well, where his Swedish agent Claes Elefalk (who was with Sundin in Los Angeles) says that he has never seen Mats Sundin in better shape.
So with both agents saying these things, it looks like a decision will finally be made this month.
I gotta say, he's gonna look great playing with the Sedins! Ha!

Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.

Your's in Hoops,
Peter Robert Casey

Jenny: I had put it out of my mind mostly until JP Barry opened his yap last week! :)

Peter Robert: HOOPS? Are you out of your mind? That could be one of the worst sports out there! I can not collaborate with a basketball junky...sorry.

Yours in rubber pucks,
Sean Zandberg

I'm kidding, Peter. But I'm not sure where I'll put a B-Ball link yet. I don't have a category for that here.
