that's a pretty short commentary. It will be interesting if they elaborated on that statement...

Is he heading to California with us or (more likely) joining after roster freeze ends?

Same here. I can't wait to see who joins the Wolf Pack.

If he does join, I hope this team is not majorly dismantled to accomodate him. Some minor moves would be fine, moving an expensive defenseman would be fine, but if the Rangers have to move Scott Gomez, Brandon Dubinsky, or Nik Zherdev I would say no to the deal. This team still has to have enough parts to compete for the Cup, not trade away important pieces or possibly even the future for a player who may only be here for half a season. And even though he isn't playing much, I hope they hang on to Prucha and trade the likes of Roszival, Redden, Kalinin, Dawes, Fritsche, Rissmiller.

...

yes, the smart move would be to move a Dman like Kalinin who is making $3 million and not doing much. I would much rather see Del Zotto, Sanguinetti, or even Potter in the lineup!

Trade Kalinin for a 2nd or 3rd..that should do it hopefully.

I love how everyone sees this as the instant solution to all of our problems. Sundin is old, hasn't played in 6 months, and IMO wasn't even that good last season. Hopefully his contract won't handcuff us further, and hopefully I'm wrong about his play - but the way things have gone lately for this team, I doubt it.

Sanguinetti is not ready for the NHL.

THE FAN 590's Bob McCown is reporting that former Toronto Maple Leafs' captain Mats Sundin has decided to join the New York Rangers. McCown's source, who has intimate knowledge of the situation, expects this decision to made public later this week.

Yeah, no idea how reliable Bob McCown is but 590's website has it up and they're reporting it on their updates. (I listened to the live feed from the site)

Guess we'll see.

TSN reporting JP Barry has said this rumor is FALSE. Welcome to the emotional roller coaster that is Mats Sundin.

I would dare to say both

It would make sense to have the best 6 forwards together

Naslund, Sundin, Zherdev
Dubinsky, Gomez, Drury

sweeeeet

On paper this move makes us better. However, I will have to wait to see what roster moves are made, and which players switch positions before I am sold on it. If he is in fact coming here, I hope it works out, but I am just not sure it is the answer.
