The wait for the Monster just got longer.
The North American agent for Swedish free-agent netminder Jonas (Monster) Gustavsson says his client will not make a decision on which team he'll sign with until sometime after July 1. A decision was originally expected by today.
"It's been a hectic and busy time for Jonas," Joe Resnick told TSN. "With his mother passing away recently, he really just needs some time to take stock of things. There's no point in rushing into a decision. All we know at this point is his decision will come after July 1."
Four teams - Toronto, San Jose, Colorado and Dallas – are in the running for the big late-blooming free agent goalie.
