In case you missed it in the comments from the previous post, General Borschevsky has cracked the code on Sundin.
We reported that Sundin was doubling back on his previous October/June stance, which made him sound like a liar and a hypocrite. But the General went back to the original quote and found an interesting detail.
There's a loophole:
"I never believed in rental players to start with," Sundin told reporters. "I think if you want to be part of the team that has a chance to win the Stanley Cup or a team that is going far in the playoffs, my opinion has always been that you want to be there from training camp or the start of the season to be part of the group."
Sundin can rejoin the Leafs mid-season as long as there's no "chance to win the Stanley Cup" or any talk of "going far in the playoffs".
There you have it: Sundin is coming back to Toronto!
P.S. If you're not already visiting or subscribing to General Borschevsky's blog, you should be. It's great stuff.
