From Steve Zipay of Newsday:
An agent (not Mats Sundin’s or Brendan Shanahan’s) told me on background a few minutes ago that he believes the Rangers have suggested to Sundin that if he remains undecided by Tuesday, they will move on.

The first pre-season game is a week from Saturday.

This scenario makes sense, and I would expect Shanahan to return to the Rangers sometime next week.
