Would you all just give it up already with comparing Leaf players to players from other Canadian teams. I have a phrase i use for it, but i will spare te moderators the work of having to edit this post!!
Today, Naslund, but closer than one might expect. Career, Sundin. I'm not sure I wouldn't be more comfortable counting on Sundin in the clutch either. Still, Naslund is a better hockey player right now.

Sundin is Captain Clutch! You must have him mistaken with someone else. Sundin is 34 and at the tail end of his prime. naslund smack dab in the middle of it right now, so of course he's better now. 3-4 years ago, it was Sundin and it wasn't close. Career wise, Sundin now, maybe naslund when all is said and done.
I'm getting sick of all these threads by people with an inferiority complex when it comes to the Leafs though. It's like a bunch of dudes checking out the penis of the guy next to them in the shower and disappointed when they come up short (yet again) 1:1 comparisons are pointless. It's a team game. It takes 12 forwards, 6 defensemen, and a goalie every night, so take it easy young fellas, let them, play the games, and remember size doesn't matter.
