Is It So, Joe?
by Jim Iovino, Ace Reporter
Will he or won't he?
Joe Sakic's still unsure about his future in the NHL.
On Monday Sakic told a Colorado radio station that he hasn't made up his mind if he's coming back to the NHL for another season or retiring. He said the decision might be made in the "next couple of weeks."
He said the decision isn't going to be based on a coaching change in Colorado, whether or not Peter Forsberg comes back or any other factor other than how he feels and whether he thinks he can prepare for another year in the NHL.
"I will say I don't want this to linger too much longer," Sakic told radio station KJCD. "I should make my final decision pretty soon. Whatever that is, I want to make sure it's 100 percent sure."

Mats Sundin is also contemplating his future. He said he will probably make up his mind in August.
Right now he's playing in a Forsberg golf tournament in Sweden and doesn't seem too concerned about making an announcement anytime soon.
At least several teams have expressed interest in his services, including the Maple Leafs, Canucks and Canadiens.
Before we go, I just wanted to say thanks to Theo Fleury for joining us on the LCS Hockey Radio Show last week. Being a proud Fleury fan for years, it was an honor to finally get a chance to interview him.
