Maple Leafs fans were disappointed at the departure of Mats Sundin last season and many were angry at how it played out. Now that Sundin announced his retirement, he will be known as an all-time great with the Leafs. SB Nation's Pension Plan Puppets takes a look at his accomplishments as a member of the Maple Leafs for 13 seasons. They also shared this quote, which I believe will speak for all Leafs fans as they reflect back.
Ultimately, I believe that his Hockey Reference caption is how Mats Sundin will be remembered:First player to score 500 as a Leaf. All-time Leaf leader in goals and second in assists. 20th most goals scored in the NHL and most overtime goals in NHL history. Nine-time all-star. Captain of the Swedish Gold Medal Olympic team. Greatest Leaf Ever.
Thanks for the memories Mats.
