He would have been an excellent Center rental imo if the Rangers were real contenders - highly motivated to close his career in NYC with a title (a la Bourque) = but this is just not going to happen.

Sorry
How do you know that Sundin is going to be retiring?
He was asked about this in an interview & seemed pretty mad. He said he's still some years in him.
It's not like his ability to play has been decreasing, he's still putting up the same points as always.
And he wouldnt be trying to get a contract done with the Leafs if he was planning on retiring.
