Instead of Yoric's skull, he's got an iPhone

Google search of the day: "Mats Sundin Hamlet" turns up 4,290 matches.

Good gosh a'mighty -- only a bunch of journalists would think they're being clever or literary by referencing a play that everyone in the goddamm Western Hemisphere reads in high school.

It's far, far better to work something on the scale of a Jim Croce reference -- "You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask of the ol' Lone Ranger and you don't push Mats Sundin to make up his mind."

Seriously, though, hopefully someone with head for business (Krister?) can figure out if Sweden's tax rates have anything to do with Sundin's feet-dragging. What's his tax situation if he ends up signing with a U.S.-based team and thus establishes residency in two countries outside Sweden? Plus there's the whole issue of Quebec taxes.

(This is coming from someone who can barely figure out how to do his own income taxes in Canada.)
