What are your memories of Mats Sundin?
Wed, September 30, 2009

By MIKE ZEISBERGER, SUN MEDIA

Mats Sundin hung up his blades, never having fulfilled his dream of bringing a Stanley Cup to Toronto.

But it certainly was fun watching him try, wasn't it?

For 13 seasons the big Swede was the face of the Leaf franchise, registering more goals (420) and points (987) than any other player in team history. Only fellow countryman Borje Salming had more assists.

Yet critics always pointed to the fact that Sundin was never able to lead Toronto to an appearance in the final, something that frustrated the smooth-skating centre over the years. It is a significant blemish on his resume that cannot be ignored.

But that's not how he should be remembered in Toronto.

How do you think Mats Sundin should be remembered? Have your say in our forum.

Mats was a superstar player surrounded by mediocre team mates. Any time a new potential showed his face on the team they were railroaded out as quick as they could be sold. thanks Mats for good years. Thanks for nothing management you finally got a team without hope or prospect.

My memories of Sundin? A media whore. Press conferences to announce that he had nothing to announce. I'm glad he's out of the NHL, and equally glad he has no ring.

A point a game player , a captain who could not lead his team upwards in 13 seasons . A media favorite that is and will be fiecley defended by them

Get Sundin back as Captain;else with already three losses, "wait till net year" quote is just around the corner...Burke needs a couple of years to get the Leafs into playoff with this bunch.

Great INDIVIDUAL hockey player who could not make those around him better. Then left his team for money. Spoiled millionaire, should have taken the trade at deadline Mats. See ya!

Mats is one of a kind. Hockey fans can not take away his outstanding qualities. Anybody with negative comments clearly do not know how to appreciate what kind of player Mats was. Enough said. Mats......thank you for all of the memories. You will be missed.

He would look good right now playing for the Lafs. Apart from Stajan, there isn't a centre on that team right now that is any better.
