The Rocket, the Great One … and Mats Sundin


Last night, Leafs Television chose Toronto captain Mats Sundin as all three stars of his club’s 8-1 victory over the New York Islanders. Sundin had become the all-time leading Leafs points-getter with an assist, giving him 917 career points, one more than Darryl Sittler.

On March 23, 1944, Canadiens icon Maurice (Rocket) Richard was named all three stars of his team’s 5-1 victory over the Maple Leafs, having scored every one of Montreal’s goals. In several games toward the end of his career, Wayne Gretzky also was named all three stars in a tribute recognizing his record-breaking brilliance.

So now it’s Sundin’s turn. Agree or disagree that this is a good thing?
