That speaks volumes. I also believe Mats was a much more vocal guy in the locker room than you seem to think. Everybody looked up to him. If you could win on leadership alone, Sundin aswell as Alfredsson and Iginla would all have multiple cups.
This , so much this. Check that comeback game in Torino. "Hårde Hardy" just froze and stood there with a stupid look on his face. Mats took that team on his back.

Forsberg was the superior player but Mats Sundin was the ultimate Tre Kronor captain.
