What is sundins true potential?

Mats sundin has been stuck with second line linemates most of his career. The two best linemates he ever had were Gary Roberts and Alexander Mogilny with both of them past their prime.

Sundin is an nhl superstar who has been consistent through out his career being a more than point per game player. He is 29th in all time goals, 42nd in assists and 34th in points.

But could you imagine sundin playing with two skilled wingers? Could you imagine the potential for the 36 year old.

Last season sundin potted 76 points. Which is only two less than the previous season and two more then the season prior.

Could you picture -kariya-sundin-smyth
How about Blake-sundin-nylander
this would be good wellwood-sundin- briere

Yes i doubt briere would want to come to toronto.
Your probably saying ” this is impossible ” but it’s not.

Would you like to know how?

The leafs cap hit right now is $43, 888, 100

The cap is $50, 300, 000

That gives us $6, 411, 900

Yes i know that is not enough for even Briere but there is apparently interest in kubina from teams. If we can dump kubina for picks or prospects then that gives us an extra 5 million and now were on a new playing fied.

This gives us over 11 million dollars!

With an extra 11 million dollars we would could have these lines.

Bell- Antropov- Poni
Pohl- Devereaux- Kilger

A combination of any of those players would nicely accent sundins wings.
Yes i expect to get bashed on some of this

    If you trrade Kubina it's for another overpaid player. Maybe Brad Richards (but the Leafs would have to give up a few draft picks or prospects also to get Richards).

    If teams Have interest in Kubina they better pick up there phones before Sunday!
    The Leafs are most likely suitors for kariya. Smyth will be way to expensive! If we trade Kubina we can maybe get 2 second tier Players and have a little bit of cash in the bank.

    Its already hugely speculated that the Edmonton Oilers have serious interest in Kubina and could be traded there as early as tommorow.

    With not much in the way of UFA defenceman the Oilers have some serious issues aquiring any of the so called UFA defenceman that are out there as Souray is supposedly on his way to San Jose or Colorado.

    Its been mentioned that a deal has been put together between the Leafs and Oilers for Kubina and may have fell thorugh tonight but might not be announced till sometime Saturday. There is know word on the return to the Leafs but Eklund and Dreger as well as McKenzie who spoke last night on the Fan590 that the Leafs could get Lupul coming the other way as Oilers management and Lupul himself have said that he will wish to move on anyways  I believe big things are on the horizon tommorow.

    Getting two top tier wingers to play with Sundin would be fantastic, but it's not going to happen. At this point in time, taking into account salary, ability, cap room, etc, Kariya would be the most likely candidate. If the Leafs could dump Kubina's salary that would be bonus, but it's unlikely. All I expect from JFJ is to get one of Smyth, Blake, or Kariya. That being said, I would love to be wrong and have the Leafs end up with far more breathing room to sign players with.

    ya once again a pointless article, Sundin is capable of getting 100+ points but only if he has wingers around him, everyone kind of knew that lmao

    There not going to get 2 forwards. I was watching Tsn and Dreger said that they were looking for well, obviously i scoring winger, and beleive it or not they were also looking for a defenceman. This makes me wonder if Kubina is going to be traded.

  7. Aetherial says:

    I just wish he was able to play his whole career with at least one top winger.

    He has been more consistent than ANY NHL player in th epast 12 years or so, excepting maybe Jagr.

    If he had a good winger throughout his career, he would have shoe-in hall of fame numbers and would be considered a superstar.

    He is, and always has been, one of the most underrated players in the league, and a class act, while playing in an insane pressure cooker and being under appreciated by fans and media for most of his career.

  8. PaulK123 says:

     plz stop acting so smug and like your better than us, lmao like stop signing off pleases, its getting stupid now

  9. TheSource2659 says:

    Sorry the signing off thing is a force of habit.

    As for sounding smug I dont mean to thats just the way I roll.

  10. PaulK123 says:

    lmao k 😛

  11. leafmeister says:

    Sundins numbers already make him a shoe in for the hall. Even without his numbers like you said he has captained a team in a hockey crazed city through injuries and such problems. Any sens fan can deny it all they want but as you said he is one of the best, underrated and a great leader.
