Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren didn't sound like a man on the verge of signing free-agent center Mats Sundin yesterday.
Sundin, 37, an eight-time all-star, has drawn interest from several teams, including the Flyers.
Holmgren's interest seemed exploratory, and it remained a long shot that the Flyers, already about $1 million over the NHL's $56.7 million salary cap, would be able to afford Sundin.
"Personally, I'd like it to all go away," Holmgren said of the rumors that the Flyers were in the mix for Sundin. "What's the sense when we don't even know if he's going to play yet?"
