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

Mats You sign with anyone you want. You played your heart out for years on a mediocre team without the support any other superstar would have gotten. Look at Gretzky. the team was built around him, same with Messier, Bobby Orr of the old days. He had to carry the team and did it well, all things considering. Sign where you want and fill your pockets with gold . Us real TO fans and others with hockey sense understand where games end and and business begins. We'll be cheering no matter the color the jersey. That is the mark of a true hockey fan.

Russ, this is not a Leaf-thread any more. The Sens, Rangers, Canucks and Ducks are all rumoured to be interested. Cliff is just saying he'd be happy to have Sundin back out of respect to him --- I highly doubt you'll ever see Mats in a Toronto uniform again.

I'm not sure where he should play, but Gary Bettman and the NHL should wake up and postpone the NHL season until this matter is resolved. I mean, how can any player or team commit 100% with such a life altering decision in the balance?

Good question. I think he could bring alot of experience to the Sens and if he did well with/for the team it would be something to run leafs face in it. On the other hand, he is no spring chicken and I would hate to see someone like that come on board and end up like a McEarchern(?) or whatever the centre's name was we tossed out a while back. Hopefully the Sens will be prudent with their money...

mats should come home and be true till the end. if he goes elsewhere he will be the worst booed player in leafs history. just a bruins fan's opinion

as said before..with himself and if that fails his wife

Matts should not return to TO as the team don't need him now. He will unbalance the side and should look for his dream else where.

The new look leafs are doing just fine.

Go back to Sweden and play till his hearts content, but quit wasting everyone's time here in the NHL. Teams should be focused on what they have a stop worrying about someone whose no Wayne Gretzky and doesn't deserve all the attention he's getting. He's a good player but he's not the be all end all as everyone's making him out to be! Certainly not worth 20 million! He showed his loyalty to the Leafs by staying with a team that had NO hope instead of taking a trade to better a team he supposedly cares so much about and then walked away at the end of the season and left them with nothing! There's the type of guy you want to pin your hopes on! NOT! Send the loser back where he came from and move on!

There's big difference between gambling on poker and gambling on sports.

Pete Rose bet on his own sport. That's a big no-no, because it undermines the integrity of the sport.

Mats is playing poker on a TV ad and even if he was really betting on poker, it really doesn't create any conflict with the sport of hockey.

How about some fresh new topics for discussion. These Leaf related ones keeping coming up over and over again.
