Sundin talked to Ohlund hours before announcement / Canucks' Swedes thrilled (of course)

New, comments
From Hockeyexpressen:
Mats Sundin reveals that when he had decided to make a comeback in the NHL for a few weeks ago, it was the Canucks team that was best.
"They have always behaved very professionally, "says Sundin.

His agent at CAA in Sweden, Claes Elefalk, stood yesterday in constant telephone contact with Mats.
Mats talked to Tre Kronor-mate Mattias Öhlund in Vancouver a few hours before he took his final decision. He got the final answers he wanted,"said Elefalk.
Well geez, thanks Mattias! So what did Ohlund say to Sundin on Thursday morning? Expressen would only mention that Ohlund told Sundin that all of the guys on the Canucks would welcome him to the club and that they would be happy to have him here. Ohlund already sensed that Sundin had made up his mind to come here.
Sundin told the Swedish paper that it is going to be "tremendous fun" to play with the Canucks. He will probably practice with the team for about 10 days before he plays.
The Swedes in Vancouver: Sedins, Ohlund and Edler are rejoicing at the news. Daniel said that the Canucks will be "respected in the League". They are excited about having a secondary punch to our offence of this calibre. While they want to play with him on a line, they anticipate Sundin playing with Demitra.
Sundin will be making a conference call from Sweden to some mainstream paper Friday morning. Looking forward to it.
