The Mats Sundin roller coaster ride continues. Today’s latest twist comes courtesy of Elliott Pap (Vancouver Sun):
J.P. Barry, the agent for Mats Sundin, said today his client is not in contract talks with any National Hockey League team — and that includes the Vancouver Canucks.
Barry was reacting to a report that the Canucks and Sundin were “said to be in negotiations” on a one-year deal “in the neighbourhood” of $2 million.
“There are no negotiations involving Mats with any team at the present,” Barry told The Vancouver Sun.
More from Pap:
Canucks GM Mike Gillis has steadfastly maintained that Sundin, 38, would have to be in training camp from Day 1.
Seeing that camp starts at 9:30 AM tomorrow morning, that leaves Mats about 20 hours to make up his mind and sign with the Canucks.
