Easy question. See me in the semi-finals. If Sundin's still healthy, still playing and we're still in them, it was a good move, and I don't care why Sundin chose to come.

I personally think it was a good move because he has played with the sedins before so chemistry with them
and mattias ohlund too
and they have been playing good hockey get luongo back you got a great team

If it was "only for the money" then why didn't he sign the $10 million (?) deal he was offered?

The reason he chose Vancouver was becaus there was already a spot for him on teh team without having to free off cap space, which was not the case with the Rangers.
Becoming a third wheel in a major Stanley cup contender, say Red Wings, is not an option for a player like Mats, so it made perfect sense staying in Canada and playing for Vancouver.

Because the $10M offer was for the whole season and was tabled in the summer.

I think that if he plays to his ability he is an asset to any team he is on. It was a bit risky signing a 37 year old who hadnt played in so long, but it seems he is finding is stride again. It'll be interesting to watch either way.

A player putting up points like Mats has in his recent season doens't descend into a has-been over the period of half a season.

From what I could gather, the $10 mil deal was for the remainder of this season and the next?

No your right, but it does take alot of effort for someone at his age to maintain a level of physical fitness that allows him to play at that level. He was bound to have alot of rust when he returned.

As for his pay, not quite. In the summer they offered him a two year deal worth $20M ($10M/yr). When he signed he signed for one year at $10M that was pro-rated to something like $4.5M because the season has already started.

He's begining to produce and more importantly he's made Kesler into a scoring machine. If this keeps up the Canucks have a good chance to go deep into the Playoffs.
