I would definitely like to see him signed for what Habs have been paying him (1.3M) to be our 3rd line checking winger and penalty killer.

But Sundstrom has to be offered 2.035M, or he's a UFA. Perhaps Gainey takes another chance like he did with Kilger, and let him go UFA while trying to sign him for much less the 2M.

With this being one of the most unknown off seasons ever, its' hard to say what will happen. I could see some teams taking a chance on letting players go UFA to resign them at cheaper rates, which could open the doors for other teams to make an offer. Depends on what they think of the chances there will be a next season. It's going to be very interesting what happens this summer/fall.
