Monster Update: No Decision Yet, But Field May Be Thinning
LONDON - Brian Burke may continue to push, but The Monster hasn't decided yet.
In fact, agent Joe Resnick said today that Swedish free agent goalie Jonas Gustavsson's situation hasn't changed after meeting with Burke yesterday in Stockholm.
"No, no change," said Resnick. "It's really up to Jonas now. I can't make a decision for him."
The earliest Gustavsson will decide is tomorrow, but it could still drag on into next week. The Colorado Avalanche have already effectively dropped out by getting incumbent Peter Budaj and free agent Craig Anderson under contract.
The Leafs are likely to hang in there, and its not clear whether San Jose or Dallas may yet choose to head in a different direction for goalkeeping help.
