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?

If I were in TO, had millions of dollars and all my summers off, I'd leave too. But this has nothing to do with the guy's committment on the ice.

No more meddling/BS/red tape from the office and no more "Mr nice guy" on the ice.

Maybe Dick Peddie should coach? He's awesome!
Maybe the entire board of the Teacher's Pension Plan by committee?
Maybe just prop up a used condom behind the bench with a couple of old syringes as assistants. It won't make a difference anytime soon.
