TSN.ca broke the news that Mats Sundin has officially declined to waive his No-Trade clause and will remain a Maple Leaf for the rest of the season.
The decision will surely spark an outpour of mixed emotions from the Toronto faithful. Mats has been well-respected throughout his entire career in T.O., but may now have to take some heat to defend his decision to stay loyal to his club. Most fans embraced the idea of dealing Mats by Tuesday to acquire a young roster player and some draft picks to build for the future, but with Mats' recent decision to stay put, some of those fans may shift their excitement to anger. It would be ironic to call Mats selfish, but nevertheless, that is surely what will happen over the next few hours.
On a side note: Thanks for being patient in my absence...I'm back now, just in time for deadline day.... speaking of deadline day: I will be in SCHOOL unfortunately from 12 noon to 2pm, which is located downtown, so by the time I get home to update it will be around 2:45 pm. I will re-cap the day's events around that time, so until then, enjoy the action live.
