Mats Sundin to New Jersey…

March 10th, 2008

If we win, we’ll let you take a point.

Seen talking animately to the refs late in Saturdays game, it was assumed Mats Sundin was arguing a call. It turns out, he was negotiating on behalf of his team. With his team down by a goal and less than a minute to play, Sundin went to desperation:

“Let us take the two points, we’ll give New Jersey one point and everybody is happy. We will all go out tonight and we’ll be an ‘unstoppable force.’ Or better better yet, give us Marty Brodeur, we’ll let them take Andrew Raycroft, and we’ll ‘be hard to beat.'”

Later, Sundin was heard to say:

“When this is over, if we can unify the Toronto Maple Leafs and New Jersey Devils, then we will clearly win because there is so much energy behind what is happening.”

When it was pointed out to Sundin that his team was losing, so New Jersey wouldn’t likely agree, he shrugged and said, “hey, it’s good enough for the Clinton’s!”
