On one hand, Ron Wilson said he respects Sundin for not rushing back if he is unsure whether or not he wants to play -- adding that he would welcome back the longtime Leafs captain with open arms.
On the other hand, Wilson suggested that one of the problems with the sad-sack Leafs last year was a distinct lack of leadership.
And you don't have to be Howie Meeker to connect the dots there, that leadership is supposed to be one of the major responsibilities of the team captain.
Is Wilson right about the Leafs recent poor form?

Can you think of any one else who could represent the organization on the ice as it is run today?
Sorry Leaf Nation - The truth hurts!

I would rather see a bunch of youngsters playing their hearts out than watch another year of the present setup.
The fans are also to blame as they seem prepared to watch any team that is put together. My advice would be switch to basketball and at least you will see a playoff round.

I was there in the 60's, the players had fire in there bellies then. Not like the Wusses hockey produces today (TO has the market covered there).
Just recently moved to USA, 1/2 hr out of Detroit...awesome team, just awesome.

Don Cherry already showed what he has, he won coach of the year awhile ago.
