We do know how Sundin fared, on lousy teams with not much support and how he did in international tournaments as well.

He is in my top 4 this round as is Zetts and probably Igor and Petrov although 3 and 4 are still open.
If anything, every representation regarding Keats came with the caveat that it was possibly one round too early to rank him Top-4, and Sturm just basically said that the Fredrikson/Keats comparisons would be more appropriate for next round.

I fail to see how that equates to a push.

As for Sundin, I'm not sure he's top-3 in the NHL 80ies onwards group, which makes him a non Top-4 candidate for this round (in my eyes at least).
