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.
