Also good to see the number who weren't so naive.
It is quite ironic because we have Fletch to thank for even having 13 years of Mats in the first place.

I agree with your thoughts.

I was not even 10 when Sundin was traded to Toronto. So for me, he was and forever will be "that" player. The guy whose hockey cards you had to have, the one you pretended to be when you played, etc.

I don't think he was the greatest player to ever play for the Leafs (he is in the top ten IMO) but he certainly had the greatest Leaf career.

I.m eagerly waiting for them to announce the game where they will honor his number, because I'm going to want to be there - cheering my heart out.
