For a while there I thought it may be a good idea to trade Sundin to a team where he could win the Stanley Cup. Trade Sundin for his own good, is what that position is called. Then I realized that I, and any other who holds that position, have been "pissing and missing the pot". Here's why: Let's say Sundin agreed to be traded (NFW, he says), what would guarantee that he'd come back? Nothing, especially once he realizes that the grass is indeed greener on the other side of the fence. If he won the Cup with another team, which would be the objective we say, there would be even less of a chance that he would agree to come back.
Then there's the issue of the team who takes him. Would they want him to go away after he helps them win a Cup. Would you? NFW.
Hopefully the Leafs will act with some class and will leave him alone. He deserves it.
