I, am sure none of your are surprised, am in total agreement with everything written here as ESPN’s Senior Hockey writer included Sundin on his list of this years Turkeys:
“The big Swede is/was a terrific player and I’d love to see him come back and play. But, I’m a little confused. At last season’s trade deadline, he said he wouldn’t waive his no-trade clause because he didn’t believe in the idea of joining a team for just the stretch run. He went a step further, talking about the “entire journey” that means “October through June.” I guess he’s changed his mind about that. He’s certainly entitled to change his mind, but I think hockey fans (and writers) are entitled to get tired of waiting for him to make a decision. Sundin’s agent, J.P. Barry, says there are a dozen teams interested in his client. I believe that. I also believe Sundin only wants to go to two or three cities. I figure New York and Montreal remain at the top of his list, if he ever decides to come back. I guess time will tell. I guess …”
It is J.P Barry’s job to drum up interest in his client. i am convinced that every time we hear a peep about Sundin it is his agent trying to keep his client’s name alive….
