Painfully, the speculation as to where Mats Sundin will play this season and for how much has started.
Well, here's a news flash: the odds of Sundin playing at all are very slim.
Retirement is a safer bet than Sundin re-signing with the Vancouver Canucks, or any other NHL team.
JP Barry, Sundin's agent, responded with a strong denial to a report that Sundin is in negotiations with the Canucks.
"There have been zero negotiations with Vancouver or any team for that matter," Barry told TSN.
"Mats just returned from his honeymoon and hasn't made any final decisions about resuming his career," Barry concluded.
However, until the 38-year-old newlywed announces his retirement, teams will continue to call and the speculation as to where he might land will be endless.
