Remember the Mats?


Do you remember Mats Sundin?  He was a nice Swedish fellow who wore #13 for the Toronto Maple Leafs the past 13 seasons.  He holds the franchise record for most goals and points and he's second in assists.

Here we are, about to hit Labour Day weekend, and Mats is still on the fence.  Will he retire?  Will he sign with the Leafs?  Will he become a Ranger or Canuck or Flyer or Canadien?  Do we still care?

As this drags on, I find myself hoping he'll call it a day and hang up his skates.  I envision a neat Ikea coat rack where his skates would hang.  I can see them there, in his quaint Swedish cabin by the Ikea kitchen cabinet stocked with Campbell Chunky Soup cans.

Remember the Mats.
