What are the chances the Leafs will honor Mats Sundin for making the Hall of Fame?

Since tomorrow night was supposed to be the annual Hockey Hall of Fame game the Leafs fans won't get a chance to give a standing ovation to Mats Sundin since he would have been introduced before the game. Now even though he's still being inducted on Monday which is the most important thing to remember, I can't help but thinking should the Leafs still give him the chance to get that ovation from the fans at the Air Canada Centre. I realize they did that for him last season when his jersey was honored, however making the Hall of Fame is a completely different thing. So when the NHL season starts should the Leafs do something to honor him or not?

Of course they're going to honour him, just as he deserves.

I don't think there's any doubt that the Leafs will do something once the season starts (or at the beginning of next season). He was the face of the franchise for well over a decade and one of the best to don the blue and white.

It's a shame that it won't happen on his HOF Night though.

They obviously will.


When it does, lets just hope it goes better than when they raised his banner

Don't forget he is their all time leader for goals and points.

Yes another thing we will miss due to the lockout, 3 ex Leafs going in. Saturday would have been great, to see them all before the game. Hopefully, we do something for all of them, not just Matts.

This year Sundin is the only former Maple Leaf going in.

Last year it was Gilmour, Belfour & Nieuwendyk who got inducted and were introduced during the pre-game ceremony.

Of course the Leafs will honour Sundin next year.

Sundin will be playing at the Legends games at the ACC on Sunday, he will get a standing ovation from us.

Dougy will be captain & Clark is on Dougy's team. I can't wait!

It bothers me that there are people who claim to be Leaf fans who are so petty and vindictive -- not too mention that such people also seem to feel that pettiness and vindictiveness is preferred to forgiveness.

They said at the game that it will air on TSN tomorrow night, so if you didn't get a chance to see it today, you've always got that. I had an incredible time at the game, it was such a fun atmosphere. All the incredible players that I never dreamed I would get the chance to see play, it was insane, but the biggest highlight for me was seeing Sundin lace 'em up again. What an awesome player he was, I'm very happy I got the chance to cheer him on at the ACC one more time.

Sundin is a Leafs legend and the people who are still on his case need to stop. He didn't do anything wrong - he didn't want to give up on the team because we were still within a few points of a playoff spot, and after 13 seasons of loyal service, the way Fletcher was trying to pawn him off was frankly pretty despicable. You never saw Avalanche management try to dump Sakic off for a couple first rounders at the end of his career, nor did Detroit try to ship Lidstrom out once he turned 40. All Sundin wanted was the same loyalty back that he had shown the team for over a decade, and the fact that we never won the Cup says more about management's inability to build a consistently strong team around him than it does about Sundin himself. He never wanted to leave Toronto, but Fletcher tried to force him out, then Burke essentially gave him the "thanks, but no thanks" come free agency. This is a man who did and still does bleed blue and white, and any fans who are truly of the same ilk would be able to recognize that.

I for one look forward to seeing the Leafs honour Sundin's very deserving HHoF induction, whenever hockey actually happens to resume.

Likewise. I had a blast. Seeing Sundin not only in the blue and white again, but playing with Roberts and Tucker was great to see again.

Paul Coffey though, man the guy still has the vision and poise.

No, he used a clause in his contract the organization gave him.

I was at the game too and had a great time...it was really surreal seeing all those Leaf greats on the ice at the same time. I had goosebumps when Sundin skated onto the ice lol

Thanks! looks like it will be on TSN2 after the induction. Sounds like it was awesome!

Mats Sundin for Eric Lindros trade rumour from the past

to: Philly
Mats Sundin

to: Toronto
Eric Lindros

Was this a rumour that circulated years ago? Like sometime around 2000?

Did anyone ever hear this back then?

If it's true it would have been the fleecing of the century.

This thread is to honour Mats. Trading Sundin for Lindros would have been a huge mistake. We miss you Mats. We took you for granted in Toronto. We will never do that again.

Congrats on the HHOF!

Quick search only comes up here ...

However, there was a close deal for Antropov, Markov and a 1st. for Lindros. I think Clarke wanted Kaberle instead of Markov.
