For a short intermission I thought this latest offering from the Toronto media would be a nice break from all this...playoff talk.
Last year it was Mats selling his house. This year...
SWEDISH CLUB CHASING SUNDIN!
Mats Sundin's former club in Sweden is trying to convince the Maple Leafs' captain to head home and play for Djurgarden according to reports out of Sweden.
While Djurgarden could not match any financial offer the Leafs could put forth, the Swedish club is hoping the lure of returning home and some creative financing would help convince Sundin to sign, according to Swedish daily Aftonbladet.
The contract that has been offered has been tied to revenues and could double depending on how Djurgarden fares at the gate, club director Tommy Engström told the paper.
The Leafs can still hold a one-year option on Sundin.
A small part of me wonders of the possibilities his $6M might play in the UFA market.
I think I would miss him though.
