Cliff Fletcher has told TSN that the Leafs have given Bob Gainey permission to talk to Mats Sundin.
Martin Lemay, who’s at the draft for CKAC, says he’s heard the Canadiens have dealt their first-round pick.
Was it traded to Toronto merely for the privilege of talking to Sundin?
Pierre McGuire told Mitch Melnick much depends on whether Sundin wants to play any more, or whether he’s content to come off a really good season and retire as a Leaf.
McGuire says Bon Gainey spent most of the day with George Gillett, not with the scouting staff. So something is definitely up.
