On July 1, decisions have to be made within hours, not days, and no team will keep $7 Million per year (and other possible UFAs) dangling for any length of time…So he knows his decision needs to be made at this point.
So Mats has to have decided if he’s going to play or not by now and, in my humble opinion, his reluctance to sign with Montreal can only mean that Montreal is NOT his #1 choice and that he’s waiting to see what another team or two he prefers, but with whom he cannot talk before July 1, have to offer…
I don't think he's procrastinating at all. I think he knows exactly what he's going to do, but doesn't feel he needs to share it with the media.
And he would be right. We'll find out in early July what's in his head.
