Just as everything is about to change for Sabres fans we find out that one thing will remain the same.
No matter how much I absolutely despise Mats and the Leafs, I think it is a good move for both parties. A one year deal with reduced salary and a no-trade clause insures the team has financial flexibility, but still gives Sundin control over his career. Averaging over a point a game, there is no question he can still contribute.
Signing the Toronto captain was one of the major question marks for the Leafs heading into the offseason.
If only it was that simple for us.
