SUNDIN MAY SAVE US YET.
Fletcher spent the 2nd intermission of last nights game in a closed door meeting with Dallas Co-GM Les Jackson according to this story from Damien Cox. This is great news for those of us who still hope Brian Burke's coveted Oiler pick might end up on the table come Feb 26th. Burke has stated clearly he wants to hold onto what could amount to a top 4 draft choice, but will he keep it and let Dallas get a centerman of Sundin's stature going into what could be a playoff meeting between these teams? It's fair to say that even as a rental the price for Sundin will be high. But the added incentive for western GM's to keep Sundin away from their foes might be what drives the price up to something that could really help the Leafs down the road.
