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

It makes one want to vomit the way NHL teams allow themselves to get dragged around by the nose by these guys....sundun,forsberg,selanne for example, and then sign them up for vast fortunes for 15 0r 20 games.

Starting to play in January?

Where have we seen this before by a Swede? (Peter Forsberg). Mats Sundin and other free agents who pull off this caper are nothing more than selfish, egotistical, over the hill, prima donna. NOT a team player. The League (NHL) should legislate a rule of an October 31 as the deadline to returning free agents from playing again that season.

He sold the leafs out when he didn't wave his no-trade claus, as a result the leafs got nothing for him!

Just like the rest of them follow the money.

I am not sure I understand the bitterness by "FANS". It should be Sundin who feels betrayed. Didn't this city try and treat him like a commodity and trade him away? Go figure the nerve of the guy not wanting to be a piece of meat!

Showed his true colors.

As much as i hate the Leafs, i really feel sorry for all you guys. He single handedly put you guys back 2 - 3 years.

The game continued before him and it will continue after he is gone.... who cares!

What happens next year when he and the twins are FA and teams ajust their caps?

Mats was/is a good player however.. When he was on the ice everyone else stopped playing.
