RDS is painting him like a complete vegetable, and we all know Gainey is not an idiot. Sundin is his 1st choice, and if he can get him signed, he will. In the meantime he needs to pursue Hossa.

I never said gainey is doing a bad job, im saying, its been said gainey didnt want to put an offer on the table before Sundin agreed he had an interest to play next year. I do believe he may have thrown some numbers out, but not a formal offer. I don't think he wanted to be seen as by Sundin as someone trying to buy him. Gainey will stick with a decent amount available to sundin and tell him when he's ready to talk dollars he will.
