Mats, we need to talk. It's about us. We've been close for over a decade, you're our star and we love you, and it's because I love you that I want you to get out. Go! Jump on the QEW and head West young man.
I know Nik Lidstrom and other Swedish members of the Detroit Red Wings have been in contact with you. I know they want you to join the Red Wings at the trade deadline. I know everything, and it's okay.
I want you to win the cup. You deserve it. You're a team player, loyal to a fault and highly skilled. You're not going to win the Stanley Cup here in Toronto, but you might in Detroit. You'd be a perfect fit there.
I've never cheered for the Red Wings, but if you go there I'll root for them to win it all. Mats, we love you, now go!
