1040AM - "(Sundin to VAN) signed, sealed and delivered in the next 7-10 days"

1.According to Pratt which has talked to numerous sources "Canucks are really really close signing Sundin"

2.Shorty confirms with two other sources saying in the past the past 24 hours there's a very distinct possibility that Sundin will sign with Vancouver

3. HFF's sources say that Sundin will be a Canuck 100%

4.

So no deal yet but Gillis and company are working very very hard to make this happen and are sounding optimistic. One source said it is close to being done but that Sundin is thinking on term, one or two years. ANother source says it isn't so close but that negotiations are ongoing and positive with indications high that Sundin will finally agree to a deal in the near future.


So all I can add is that no deal is done but that the Canucks are sending out messages that they are optimistic. Could be just negotiation ploys or wishful thinking. We will know soon enough.

Screw Pratt, Shorthouse is also coming onto the show later. His sources are also stating the same thing. If it was just Pratt, I would brush it aside because I can see him spewing bs.

Or maybe he has the same source as HFF, however, Pratt said Shorthouse has some inside information on Sundin and he isn't the person to be using hfboard as a source.

Pratt's a joke but if John Shorthouse (Canucks PBP guy for those who don't know) has information on it as well, which is what Pratt has said, then I'll buy it. We'll know in about an hour anyway.

I just want this stupid charade to be over with. I just hope Mats is "really really close" to signing with anyone.

I saw Pratt with a lady friend at the bar at Sutton Place Hotel while I was in Vancouver. I call BS until John Shorthouse confirms it.

Canucks have serious serious cup potential if they get Sundin though.

If John Shorthouse confirms it, I really can't see it being untrue

I'll agree...Pratt is usually a brick-head, but I would buy Shorthouse.

The one observation I will make was up until this morning Pratt was a serious 'boo-bird' about the Sundin signing. He was constantly saying there was really no reason Sundin would sign here, and he'd be surprised if it happened. For him to totally change his tune all of a sudden leads me to believe someone told him something substantial.

No they don't. Adding a couple big names never makes a team a Stanley Cup contender. It's a team for a reason.

yes, but adding two offensive players to a team with great checkers, great defense, and an all-world goalie does.

If this goes down do you think there is some legitimacy or sensibility to the Sedins for Kovalchuk thing?

I agree. I was gonna post but didn't want to spark the second "Sundin puts Vancouver in the top echelon of the West" debate I'd have today.

You've done it though, so let's see where this goes.
