SUNDIN'S LAST HURRAH?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 1
It could very well be that this is the last year for the big swede at the helm of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Sundin signed a 1 year term allowing him to decide on his own terms (and not handicap the Leafs) how he leaves the game, in what could likely be his last year in the NHL, it seems the Leafs are going to at least attempt to get him that big silver cup before he ride...

It's how you bounce back...

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Last night was what the Leafs needed. Not a blow out win, but a strong game for 60 min. That's what has killed them for the last few years. We saw this last year, games where the Leafs played their game for 60 min, they won without question. It's the games when they decided not to play for the 2nd or 3rd that killed all hope of making the playoffs. Gamache had a big ...
[b]The Passion[/b] Year after year the Leafs have tried to end the drought and year after year they have failed. It does at times get really frustrating that the team that I grew up watching just can't pull it off...at times it can even hurt. I have endured the endless bashing of our Leafs on hockey sites such as this one, I have also bashed other teams. While some...
Mats Sundin is off to one of the best starts of his career yet he sits 13th on the all star list. He is in the top five in scoring. I mean do people not realize the stats or what? Maxim Afinogenov is ahead of him! Players that he easily tops are ahead of him. I was expecting him to possibly crack the top three as where many others. What do you guys think about this?
While not a Leaf fan, I always enjoy the talk about every single player in organized hockey wanting to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs. It always happens around Trade Deadline Tuesday and July 1. Of course, it hasn't been helping that the Leafs are on the bubble every year recently to get in, and likely need the boost. Anyway, the Leafs need to do some major trades this d...
Dear Mats Sundin, I realize that you spend hours in the gym and on the ice every week trying to prepare yourself for the rigours of playing hockey at the NHL level. However, I also know (based on two very reliable sources) that you take the time to read every single comment and post made on this site so I thought I would clear a few things up. First off, I was...

Numbers Don't Lie

Posted Monday | Comments 0
I've come to realize that my mathematics professors at my alma mater failed to mention that the theories of probability and statistics [i]aren't[/i] universal after all. They immediately cease to be valid once you walk through the gates of the Air Canada Center. You see, it just doesn't matter how mathematically improbable it is for the Toronto Maple Leafs to make the play...
The passing of the torch is an expression in the sports world that is often used when a team sees the face of there franchise either retire or slowly fade to the back while a younger player steps up to replace him in that role in the hopes of leading his team to greatness. In Toronto this passing of the torch is slowly but surely starting to happen. As it stands rig...
There are un-confirmed rumours amongst Montrealer's that soon to be un- restricted free agent Mats Sundin has manifested some interest in the Montreal Canadiens. If this is true, what will it take to sign him? At the trade deadline last February, Bob Gainey ( general manager of the Habs ) tried to acquire Mats Sundin from the Toronto Maple Leafs, but Sundin refused to w...

Thought on Sundin #4566544

Posted Monday | Comments 0
I haven't gotten in on the Sundin debate, but I sure do read a lot about it. It's incredible how many theories, rumours and flip-flops we have to endure day to day. But for some reason this guy (meaning me) reads on and on. Ok, for fun...I'll throw in my best guess... Sundin will be a Hab. It's been know within the organization for some time. Grabovski was rumour...
Anyone else think that the NHL, Executives, Players, and Agents alike use him to deflect the real goings-on in the NHL? I think so. His blogs are as reliable as a Ford Pinto, or less reliable. It's like bizarro blogging. Whatever he writes, just believe the opposite and it would stand a much better chance of becoming true. Sundin going to Montreal or Toronto? well...
I don't know if anyone will read this because it is in a list of many other bloggers...and to be honest, I don't know if anyone has said this because I read very few of the other blogs.... So...that being said....this is the quote that has done it for me: "Mats is like Peter (Forsbeg) in that he would rather surprise than disappoint." -From a recent Eklund rumour -...

Sundin's playin Fletch'

Posted Monday | Comments 3
Isn't it obvious that Mats Sundin is playing TML? And who can blame him!? Think about it, If you were Mats right now, after being asked to waive your ntc after stating you don't want to be a rental player, wouldn't you be a little pissed off? I mean sure Fletcher was doing his job but for god sake, he already had said no, Mats had been loyal to the Leafs, they should show ...
This is an inside look into Mike Gillis, his past, his role, and the challenges that he has yet to face. I am a long time canucks fan, and over the last few months have witnessed many Pro and Negative Gillis statements. This blog is for all canucks fans to take a step back and look at Mike Gillis in a different perspective. I hope it's also a different perspective f...

[i]With his latest Sundin blog, TSN's Darren Dreger cites the Isles as a dark horse. Has Garth stared too hard at Brett Farve from across the street? How does this follow the plan? Well, it doesn't.

Sundin to wait a Year??

Posted Friday | Comments 14
I know this story has been told and told and told over again. Here I am adding another story to it. I haven't written a blog in quite some time, but it because I have been away working on making contacts so when I write a blog I have some substance behind what I am writing. Back to the story I started out writing. For the past 2 months I have been in almost daily con...
As the 4th month of the Sundin saga approaches there is still no end in sight. Sundin has displayed an unprecedented inabilty to make a decision if you factor the number of teams that have publicly expressed interest in his services. He was quoted recently stating "I just can't give you a timeline right now as I still haven't made a decision whether I'm going to play o...
The reports around the NHL right now are that the Capitals are trying to move veteran center Michael Nylander. Nylander has two goals and ten assists this season and is a minus two. Recently, Boudreau has not been impressed with his play and subsequently made him a healthy scratch last week against New Jersey. He returned to the line up the next game, only because of recen...

Mats to San Jose?

Posted Monday | Comments 0
As you may have read, Ek has suggested that the San Jose Sharks may be interested in the services of Mats Sundin. My first reaction to this is: Why would I want to screw up good team chemistry to add someone who may or may not fit into the current team camaraderie? After all, the ride so far has been pretty sweet. (Fingers crossed) We hope it will continue as is and the ri...

So it finally got done...Mats is a Canuck... The truth is, I became a regular follower on this site because of the Mats soap opera. I hate to admit it, but it is true. Legend had it he could sign in Montreal. It was the personal view of the proprietor of this site he could become a Hab. So month after month I ran to this site in the hopes of finally getting the ne...

Sundin returns

Posted Thursday | Comments 3
He's back in the NHL and playing for the Canucks. He certainly gave Ek a lot of material to work with in terms of being the focus (somewhat) of the hockey universe for the last long while. I really had been hoping for a larger build up to his return and really didn't get much. Living in the Vancouver area, I was kinda hoping for a little buzz about the guy but didn't g...

Farväl, Mats!

Posted Wednesday | Comments 1
While the news of Mats Sundins' decision to retire will undoubtedly be met with a wide range of responses, I for one cannot help but feel saddened by it. Say what you will, the NHL lost one of its greatest competitors today. Over his 13 years in the blue and white Sundin was the epitome of class and competitiveness, and exhibited all of the qualities that made him one ...
With credit to Damian Cox of the Toronto Star, TSN.ca reported last night that the New York Rangers have agreed to a deal with, what some consider the under sized Mats Zuccarello-Aasen. Zuccarello-Aasen hails from Norway, and in the 2010 Olympic Games he lead his nation in scoring in their four games in the tournament. In 55 games for Modo in the Swedish Elite League t...

So Long, Mats.

[img]http://cdn.nhl.com/flyers/images/upload/2009/10/matsumoto_phantoms1028.jpg[/img] Jonathan Matsumoto, the leading scorer for the Phantoms last season, has been traded to the Carolina Hurricanes for pick #206 (Ricard Blidstrand.) Some people may say the Flyers gave up too quickly on Mats. I am one of those people. Matsumoto was never given a chance to prove himself in ...
Hard-earned point tonight but a disappointment nonetheless with tonight's 2 - 1 loss to Tampa. I'll keep this brief so we can get back to the bantering on Jan's blog. I would have just included this as a comment but it is a little too long for that. First on MZA: I think we can all agree we like this kid. He battles hard and works along the boards. He shows good instinc...
