Mats Sundin was credited with an assist that gave him a club-record 917 points Thursday night, but television replays did not show him touching the puck on the scoring play.
The announced crowd of 19,319 gave Toronto's captain a standing ovation.
Will Toronto fans remember Mats Sundin as the greatest Leaf of all time? Have your say in our forum.
Sundin surpasses Sittler
Guy Lafleur was great. Patrick Roy was great.
Sittler, Sundin, Clark, Gilmour were all pretty good players.....but great haha I think not. What did they ever win? Good gawd, if they make the playoffs , that is considered "Great"
Look down the road to Chicago. The Black Hawks are basically on a par with the Leafs. Both teams are shoddy dismal outfits that are too accustomed to losing. Do the Hawks call every Tom,Dick & Harry who ever wore the sweater "great". Of course not.
An example? Howzabout holding a night for the "great" Tie Domi......they shoulda retired his jersey , don't ya think?
Leaf Nation ...reality check time.

Sundin will never be remembered for any goals that really mattered. Billy Barilko wins hands down.

Mats gets most of his points when the Leafs or winning or losing big. Look at the last 20 games of last season, he had no goals when he was really needed to provide offence to " his " team. Mats is a good player and not a leader unfortunately.
If he was better than Sittler he would have broken the records playing less games not more.
