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?

It's so simple.....The Maple Leafs use money as a smoke screen. So sad that such a weak excuse for a NHL franchise uses the maple leaf as its logo. Perhaps Toronto should become more revalent and use a lame duck.

Beats the hell out of me?

Pat Quinn Was appently a poor chice for Montreal once upon a time. Look what he did with them.

Not sure if Ron Wilson will have much impact on the Leafs, but in the 1998 finals against Detroit he made the worst motivational speech before a game that I have ever heard. Check it out on the Detroit Playoff DVD produced by the NHL.

I'm a Wings fan who lived through the dark days of the 70's and 80's, and the only way for the Leafs to get on track is through good drafting. As Ken Holland has said "there's no salary cap on scouting".

Reading through the last few pages of posts has made me chuckle!!!!

Thanks all you knuckle-heads!

Lots of "debate" over Wilson's nationality and credentials. Most of you just spew out "facts" that you may or may not have read or heard correctly.

If everyone would take a few seconds to look up whatever point they want to make, and use their freakin' spell checker as well, they wouldn't seem as illiterate!

To all you grammar grannies...keep up the good work!

As for Wilson being the right choice to coach the Leafs...most Leaf fans are going to expect miracles...they won't get them. This team needs a drastic shake-up and a reality check. Hard for me to say this, but Sundin is not the answer. Time to clean the slate, buy out some useless used-to-be's, put everyone on 2-way contracts and base all salaries on TEAM performance.

Wilson says its his dream job. Give him 6 months and he'll say "what the hell was I thinking"

Vince, nobody will ever accuse you of having an informed opinion.
