Roberts was the guy I followed most in the early 2000's. The only hockey jersey I own is a Roberts jersey. I loved Mats, thought he was a certain Hall of Famer, had no question he was the on ice leader, best and most skilled player. Roberts had that one other thing that only Tucker had on that team. He would skate through barbed wire to make a hit and create a turnover.

I think that if Lupul can end his career imitating Roberts, then he can hang his head high an puff up his chest. Somehow, I see that comparison closer and closer to being proper.
Excuse me? He's done nothing but that since joining the Leafs(figure of speech, he's done a lot more obviously).
