Sorensen have no idea about. A Senators beat writer simply said he would not be signed by Ottawa.
Also Mike Russo is reporting there may be an contract dispute between Johan Gustafsson and the Minnesota Wild.
Earlier this month, it sounded like a signing was imminent and there were just complications because there was no transfer agreement between the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation and the NHL. But I understand that was agreed upon late last week, and yet Gustafsson still hasn't signed.
Now I'm sensing more pessimism inside the Wild.
After some inquiries, Fletcher would only say, "Not done yet." I talked to Gustafsson's agent, Jay Grossman, this afternoon, and he was very vague. He just said he's traded phone calls with the Wild, had no communication today and didn't want to say anything to fuel the fire.
Again, Grossman, a veteran agent who has several top clients including Ilya Kovalchuk, was vague, but it was interesting that he said there was a "fire" to fuel.
