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 Ron doesn't yet know just how long a season can be when you are behind the Laffs bench. I recall Coach Mo looking away in horror in the final minutes of a game when McCabe, White or Colaiacove would make another bonehead play and do exactly opposite what they had just been told.
With or without Coach Ron's coaching talents, its a race to the bottom for this sad sack, motley Laffs crew of 3rd stringers.

That being said, it's good to see that nobody is immune from the wrath of the Leaf fans. If Mats can go from hero to zero in the time it takes to not win one more Stanley Cup, then nobody is immune. Any bets on how long before Toskala is the real problem?
