I don't know if anyone will read this because it is in a list of many other bloggers...and to be honest, I don't know if anyone has said this because I read very few of the other blogs....
So...that being said....this is the quote that has done it for me:
"Mats is like Peter (Forsbeg) in that he would rather surprise than disappoint." -From a recent Eklund rumour -
That's why I read these blogs. I'm looking for the drama...the excitement. Sundin is the biggest story of the off season. As a Habs fan I loved to hate him. The "Stupid Captain" of the Leafs. How many times I laughed at his stupid quotes. I heard him compare the Leafs to the Anaheim Ducks just after they won the Cup. I literally laughed my ass off. And for good reason.
And now I sit here, waiting on the news that Sundin has signed with the Habs. Why? Because the story has intrigue. The Habs look pretty good. Even those who won't admit it still quietly wonder if they're good enough. (note: Leaf Fans)
That quote tells me Sundin's career as a Leaf is over. That would be the easy end to this saga. And to be honest? The boring one. We've debated this thing to death. Back to the Leafs? Fahget abaht it!!!! This is show business baby! Hey...so he doesn't sign with the Habs...I'm over it!!! Sundin between the Sedins in Vancouver. How [email protected]
#$%D is that? Great TV though. I'd watch it!!!
"Sundin plays for 500 grand for Detroit in effort to get his gloves on Lord Stanley" Riveting!!!! Worth the price of admission. Great television!!!
Maybe he was just doing what Leaders do making that comparison to Anaheim. To lead in to battle!! Convincing the troops they have what it takes....Maybe this guy's not so dumb after all. Hmmmmmm...he'd sure look good in blue, blanc et rouge. His agent JP has done marvels in fueling this saga. The two are in cahoots!! They're planning a big splash!!! They've known all along where they are signing!!!! Those cheeky bastards!!!!
Anything but the Leafs is a good story. A reason to look forward to some good hockey. If he signs with the Leafs I will truly believe he is as dumb as he sounded as Leaf captain believing deeply they were Cup worthy.
And if Sundin does sign with the Habs? I'll get over it. Maybe Sundin is not so dumb after all.
