Top ten favourite Leafs

Just wondering who are everyones top ten favourite Leafs are. They may not be the most talented players, just who was your favourite players. Mine are...

1. Wendel Clark-The heart and soul of Toronto for many years.
2. Dougy Gilmour-Brought respect back to Toronto after so many years of embarassment.
3. Gary Roberts- An emotional leader, huge heart, grit, determination, favourite current leaf.
4. Steve Thomas-Under-rated player, great heart, a fighter, fast, decieving skill.
5. Ed Belfour-My favourite player outside of Toronto for a long time, was one of the happiest days of my life when he signed with Toronto.
6. Darcy Tucker-Every team needs a pest player, Toronto has Tucker. And he is fairly skilled. I remember a week before Toronto got him, not knowing a trade was even going to happen, I was thinking how great he would be for the Leafs, good intuition eh.
7. Tie Domi-Takes care of his teammates, isn't afraid of anyone, and I met him in person, great guy.
8. Gary Valk-Tireless worker, great p-killer, and never quit. Scored a great goal against Pittsburgh in the playoffs that was probobly the highlight of his carreer. 9.Danny Markov-The Salute to Jagr in the playoffs against Pittsburgh cemented him as a favourite of mine, tough guy, would love to have him back.
10. Yannic Perreault-Won over 60% of his faceoffs, who couldn't love a guy that does that for your team.

1. CURTIS JOSEPH!

2-5,000,000:.....

# 5,000,001-5,000,009 to be continued at a later date.
Gilmour and Domi are definitely on the list though, more then a small margin ahead of anyone outside of Cujo.


Eddie would be on my list of top 10 most disliked Leafs ever

1-Tucker- you either love this guy or you hate him...I happen to love his play (when he is in "sideshow Bob" mode at least)
2-Gilmour- I will never forget his wrap-around goal against that "chump" Joseph
3-Belfour- unlike Joseph and Potvin before him, I never feel worried when he is in net and we are protecting a one-goal lead late in the game. This guy is the definition of steady.
4-Clark- when he was healthy this guy was the most dominant power-forward I have seen play for the Leafs (bear in mind I am only 22)
5-McCabe- he hits, he fights, he scores and he is generally dependable defensively
6-Sundin- does everything that a captain should. Hope to one day see him win the cup with Toronto so that he can solidify himself as one of the Leafs all time great leaders.
7-Roberts- love the take no prisoners approach that he takes
8-Sullivan- blinding speed, great vision and creativity... I simply loved to watch this guy play.
9-Thomas- what a spark plug this guy was. When the game really counted, Thomas was always at his best.
10-Perreault- did this guy ever loose an important face off?

I restricted my choices to Leafs that I actually got to see play.

When you think about it, I was very privileged to watch Hockey the last part of the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 1/2 2000's and been a Diehard hockey fan all the time ..

That is a lot of great hockey players I got to see over the years.

MATS SUNDIN Sudden made me love hockey
Steve Thomas-how can you not like him??
Gary Roberts- mostly because of the 2002 playoffs
Alyn McCauley -see above
Darcy Tucker -a totall pest
Felix "The Cat" Potvin- Its still makes me smile when I think about that fight with Hextall
Joe Nieuwendyk-he makes everyone better around him
Tomas Kaberle- IMHO the most skilled defenceman on the team, but: SHOOT!!
Alex Mogilny- IMHO the most skilled winger on the team in the last decade
Dougie Gilmour- he just rox

Eddie is not on the list: I HATE when he plays against the Flyers, I always was a huge Eagle supporter even when everybody said when the Leafs signed him hes too old etc., but his play against Flyers made me change my mind

1) Wendel Clark - What else can i say?? i love wendel... i still remember watching him with my dad when i was a little kid and still love him to this day ... there will never be another wendel ... hit, fight, score.... the man did everything in my eyes....will never like a player more then Clark ... EVER

2) Doug Gilmour - I've met him a few times down here at Todd Gill's golf tournments... really great guy ... did so much for this team when he was here... i was devestated when he came back and got hurt... damn all i wanted was to see him suit up at home and see the crowds reaction ... to bad

3) Owen Nolan - Nolan has been my favorite player outside the Leafs and when i found out about him coming here i was so excited and he didnt disappoint with 2 goals in his first game... i hope Nolans luck turns around when the NHL starts again because hes had alot of bad luck with freak injuries... When we get a healthy nolan for playoffs just wait and see what he will do!!

4) Bryan McCabe - I love McCabe's style .. liked him ever since we got him for karpotsev (oh god was that a good trade) ... he did make mistakes in the playoffs which hurt but i still love u bryan lol

5) Darcy Tucker - Now this guys got HEART... will do anything to win thats what i love about Tucker (oh god that hit on kappy was HUGE)... I hope he stays a leaf for life

6) Eddie Belfour - I didnt have high hopes for E-D-D-I-E.. when he came here but boy oh boy he has been amazing ... have lots of respect for eddie.... just to bad he struggles against philly...but not Ottawa

7) Mats Sundin - For years i disliked Sundin very much because we lost wendel to get him ... but i love sundin now... he has carried this team for YEARS and this guy doesnt get alot of credit which he deserves

8) Gary Roberts - HEART is all i have to say about gary!! hes got lots of it!!

9) Alyn McCauley - Watched McCauley grow up... I'm from his hometown ... see his grandfather all the time.. watched him with the 67's and was glad we picked him up from jersey ... i wish we still had McCauley ... he is very underated and i feel wasnt given a great opportunity after the playoffs a few years ago

10) Steve Sullivan - I still cant believe we lost him on what waivers?? for khristich ... i loved his style... first game i ever went to see the Leafs play was in Ottawa and he had a penalty shot... was stopped but thats when i really got notice of him ... still miss him

I can never figure why they put goalies on a list like that. I mean the list takes into account goals, assists, points and penalty minutes...not exactly something that goaltenders are known for. Who really cares that Potvin had 8 assists in 369 games, what is important to fans in determining his value is how many wins, losses, ties and shutouts he had. They should always make a seperate list for goaltenders that takes goalie stats into consideration.
