Will you cheer or jeer Sundin?
Wed, January 7, 2009

TERRY JONES, SUN MEDIA

The world's most expensive hockey rental player, the subject of one of the sorriest "national" sports soap operas of all time, is going to be a major event here tonight, a feature photo-op of this entire NHL season.

Mats Sundin, after practice in Vancouver, gave himself the green light, boarded the flight and arrived here yesterday with the Canucks preparing to play in tonight's tilt against the Edmonton Oilers.

Will you cheer or jeer Sundin's return to the NHL? Have your say in our forum.

Sundin could make Canucks debut against Oilers

Enough already! I am one of Sundin's biggest fans, and even I am getting tired of the same five media sources --- Sportsnet, SLAM, FAN 590, Toronto Star, Toronto Sports Network (Oops, I meant "the" Sports Network) --- constantly tracking his every move.

WAIT! This just in --- BIG news tip! Mats was just seen at the same dry cleaners in LA that the sister's friend's cousin's half brother of the LA Kings' zamboni driver lives beside. Quick, relegate the economic crisis, parliamentary coalition and terrorist threats to page 5! Forget the all the other sports stories, including the other NHL teams, the World Juniors, the Raptors, curling and the Vancouver Olympics! Sundin is linked by 27 degrees of separation to the Kings! Alert the radio talk shows! Get the expert panel assembled for a one hour analysis! FRONT PAGE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And a sneak peak at tomorrow's news tip: Nick Kypreos confirms that Sundin hinted at a move to the Atlanta Thrashers. He came to this conclusion after Sundin told him that he bought a can of pop from a Coke machine at a Home Depot store. Both companies are based out of Atlanta, after all, so that HAS to be a hint...

Damn, it must be fun to be in the sports media business :-)

Sweden or Russia. He has held the NHL hostage long enough,besides you can get several good young players for his price tag!

If Mats want a cup ring, it's Detroit, plain and simple. He'll be long gone, six feet under before the Make Beliefs get a cup. I guess I'll be dead too. What a shame. The Ballard curse lives on.

To the media....Enough air time and mention of this has been. You are only playing into the hands of this publicity seeking jerk!

He has tooted his own horn long enough. GO BACK TO SWEDEN!!!!!

Its been so annoying how much press coverage this has gotten from the Toronto-centered media for months on end. Its been painful for almost any non-maple leafs fan to have to put up with. Ill be happy to see him go anywhere as long as it shuts the sports press up finally.
