While Mats Sundin has yet to make a decision on his playing future, sources are telling Sportsnet that the Vancouver Canucks have offered the Swedish centre a deal of $20 million over two years.
Sundin, who became an unrestricted free agent for the the first time in his career on Tuesday, has several offers on the table, Sportsnet has learned. Teams that also remain in the hunt for Sundin’s services are the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers.
“Mats has made no decision on whether he will play next year,” agent J.P. Barry said last night. “He needs more time to decide if he will play or not.
Sundin could walk away from the Maple Leafs as the team’s all-time leading scorer and the team would have nothing to show for him.
