Mats Sundin hung up his blades today, 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.

After 20 NHL seasons, Colorado Avalanche forward Joe Sakic may be ready to hang up his skates.
The Avalanche have called a news conference for Thursday at 3pm et/12pm pt, where according to local reports they will announce Sakic’s retirement.
The Burnaby, B.C. native would leave the game as one of the most decorated athletes to ever take to the ice. Sakic hoisted two Stanley Cups, participated in 13 NHL All-Star games, and was named tournament MVP for Canada’s gold medal winning team in the 2002 Olympics.
Sakic played his entire career for the Quebec/Colorado franchise, and served as their captain since 1992, after being drafted 15th overall by the Nordiques in the 1987 NHL Entry draft.
