Hockey Ohlund Willing To Help Lure Mats


"Morrison's departure, coupled with Naslund's last Thursday, puts further pressure on Gillis to land reluctant superstar Mats Sundin. The 37-year-old Swede is sitting on a massive $10-million-a-season offer from Gillis. Sundin can choose either a one- or two-year proposal. Meanwhile, Canuck defenceman Mattias Ohlund said he is ready to pump up Vancouver should Sundin require any additional information on the team or city. Ohlund is now the longest serving Canuck with Trevor Linden and Naslund both gone. "If Mats calls, trust me I will put in a good word for the team," Ohlund chuckled Monday from his summer home in northern Sweden. "I haven't spoken to him or the Canucks or anybody regarding him. Maybe I should call him. I don't know if it would help or not. I guess it couldn't hurt.""
