Canadiens to speak with Mats Sundin @NHLdotcom

OTTAWA (AP) - The Montreal Canadiens received permission from the Maple Leafs to speak with Toronto captain Mats Sundin, who becomes an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Maple Leafs general manager Cliff Fletcher told The Canadian Press on Friday that the team had given its permission, but he had no other comment.

Sundin has been with the Maple Leafs since being acquired in a trade from Quebec at the 1994 draft. He is the franchise leader in points and goals.

"At this point Mats still hasn't decided if he wants to play, let alone where," said Sundin's agent, J.P. Barry. "But obviously the Leafs are trying to facilitate a decision."
