Sounds less and less likely the Flyers will end up with Sundin unless they can either (1) make the cap space and (2) have a real need to sign him.

Rangers will need to clear salary (which might be difficult since it'll be Gomez or Drury with huge contracts) and are falling fast in the standings. Vancouver might be the end destination just out of default, contract offered, and space available.

Watch, Sundin signs with the Rags and, 2 games in goes IR. God, can this horrible drama please conclude!!! Sign somewhere, no one is paying you to decide.

If the cap drops lower next year, I'm going to say, the Rags are in for it.

Sources say the plan is for Sundin to make a final decision before NHL rosters are frozen on Friday (Dec. 19).

There had been speculation that Sundin had already made his decision and that he was about to sign with the Rangers, however Barry dismissed the rumours.

"No decision has been made," Barry told TSN. "(It is) inaccurate speculation."

He will sign in KHL. He always wanted to play with Jagr.

Yawn! Wake me up when this is finally over!

Agreed. I can just picture Mats in a NYR uniform...Not in a Philadelphia uniform. The hell with Mats, we don't need him.

This sort of drama is commonplace in the NY area. Two word reminder: Brett Favre.

RE: Bill Waters on the Fan590 this morning.

He acknowlegded that NYR and VAN are the top 2 but he predicts that Philadelphia will sneak in at the last minute and land Sundin. He said the Flyers would make create cap space by placing Briere on LTIR (but that Briere would be there come playoff time)

Flame away!

at Bill Watters. He may be right; who knows?.... but it's impossible to take him seriously.

Get it done, I'm prefectly fine with Mats as a Flyer.

I only say this because I know Holmgren won't blow the team to make one player fit.

Mats in orange and black would be a beautiful thing!

I think I'd be pretty shocked if he didn't sign in NY. Seeing as the money is in Vancouver...he'd have signed there previous to today if he was truly interested.

Although watch, Sundin will come out and say he signed with the Panthers or something like that.

Remember, everyone said Hossa was supposed to go to Montreal and he ended up in Pittsburgh at the end of the day.

So tomorrow is the day. I don't think he is singing anywhere. He just needs to go away

Sundin has signed with Vancouver, per Sportsnet TV and a text from TSN.

Wow, then it was a good year to pick the Canucks as West team to follow I guess.
