Is Ron Wilson right about Sundin?
Thu, September 4, 2008

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?

Full story: Wilson suggests Mats was part of the problem

Coach George "The Chief" Armstrong! After all he is the LAST Captain to actually hoist a Stanley Cup!

Head Coach should be Simon Cowell, he can tell them like it is. Assistant should be Paula Abduhl, she can tell them how good they are and boost their ego's.

Aside from a new GM and coach I would agree with Bill who pointed out a real deficiency. Team toughness. Sundin is not a very physical player and yet, time after time his teamates never came to his assistance when roughed up. How pathetic!

Now with Belak and Domi gone there's only Mark Bell left to drop the gloves. Hopefully the new GM will remedy this situation. In the past, the Leafs always played better when they were a physically tough team.

Doesnt really matter who the coach is, who or what is there to coach on this old, slow and very little talent on this team ?

Any smart coach wouldnt want his rep tarnished by coming to Toronto for this sad sack of a team. Even if they make the 8th place they wont get out of the first round.

If they make a good choice for a GM and he puts in a rebuilding plan that can contend down the road in a few years then the GM will be able to get any coach he wants, until then it will be old coaches that have had there better days already.

CBC needs to get some better unbiased broadcasters for HNIC..

Want a winner then hire winners...any ex-Habs out there? How about Patrick Roy, I could see a lot of "no trade clauses" getting waived after a few months with him. lol. Far too many politics in the NHL today. The good teams are full of young kids that want the cup not full of old farts that are working on retirement like 1/2 the Leafs. GO WITH YOUTH.

Colin Campbell...At least,they would have the officiating on their side.After all..it gave Burke and the dirty ducks a cup in Anaheim.
