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
Sundin is a good player, not a great player or a leader.
Sittler, Gilmour, Clark, they were great players and more importantly leaders.
Jimmy, I think its closer to 60 games longer that Sundin needed to break Sittlers records but your point is well taken.

My favourite players were Tim Horton, Dave Keon and Paul Henderson.
I was livid when we traded Wendel Clark for this guy I never heard of (and a Swede no less!).
What a steal. Clark was, for the most part, finished.
To me, with all due respect to the other Leafs (and I bleed blue), it's Mats hands down.

Mind you, you fans close to the ACC are playing with a full deck any way. When Sundin retires, only then will you realize what leader and player he was.

His 12 yr. record with the Maple Leafs is remarkable considering some of the "stiffs" various coaches have saddled him with over that time.
I do not believe he should be considered the best Leaf ever but without a doubt he is one of the outstanding players who have marked this historic franchise.
Mats Sundin's greatest contribution to Maple Leaf hockey is how well he carried himself on and off the ice in a dignified manner. He is Toronto's answer to Jean Beliveau (minus all the team championships and Stanley Cups),
