Dobber Sports



Decided not to ramble yesterday because I got back later in the day and, it being a Sunday in mid-August, there was really nothing to talk about.

If it's an interesting rumor that hasn't been done to death, then I'll mention it. But Sundin this summer – and Forsberg back in the winter – has had one rumor after another. It turns out, the Sundin to New York rumor was later bunked by his agent. So we're back to square one. I just wanted to explain why DobberHockey is slow on the uptake with the Sundin "news". Tomorrow if it's reported that he is close to signing with Montreal, I won't mention it here because by tomorrow night that rumor will be disproved as well.
