I'm resigned to the fact that Sundin will constantly be under-appreciated in the annuals of hockey history but he never ever played with another superstar player except maybe Mogilny for a couple of seasons.
I'm sorry but Sundin is easily equal in skill and ability to Marcel Dionne. Dionne played in the 70s and 80s. The game changed in the 90s and 2000s when Sundin played. Sundin basically carried his team on his back and had no support like most other superstar players had. The Leafs mismanagement really failed him and should have been able to put together and elite team but never did. I sort of wish Sundin had never been traded from Quebec to the Leafs because if he stayed with that franchise along with Forsberg and Sakic I can only imagine what his stats would look like. Probably 600+ goals and 900+ assists or something like that.
The fact that the Leafs went to 2 Eastern Conference finals is the best playoff performance he was able to achieve is sad to me. I wish he could have won a Stanley Cup as captain of the Leafs.
Obviously I'm highly biased though so yeah just look at my username.
