It's such an off-the-wall rumor, that it's honestly not even worth discussing. I think Sather has made it pretty clear that, if you're 35+, you're not getting a multi-year contract.
yeah but Sather gave Naslund a NMC...I know he isn't over 35 BUT you still can't wavie him (which is one of the main reasons you don't give guys over 35 a multi-year contract)

I don't think there is anything to Sundin coming here....I just can't see how the Rangers can fit him under the cap...I also don't know what it would mean for guys like Dubinsky and Zherdev next offseason with ZERO cap room to give them any sort of raise.....
