If Sundin played wing with a guy like Forsberg or Lindros, I think he would have been a perennial 40+ goal guy. Over the course of his career his linemates weren't as bad as some people say (never as bad as what Kessel played with last year), but he rarely played with guys who could create their own play. Roberts was a beauty, guys like Berezin, Hoglund, Nolan, and Tucker had their moments, etc. But I don't think it's a coincidence that Sundin put up back-to-back top-10 goal finishes in the two seasons he played with Mogilny.
