Toronto's Worst Kept Secret

Leafs to Honour Mats Sundin's No. 13 - The Globe and Mail

Mats Sundin is ready to take his place with other Toronto Maple Leafs legends in the rafters at Air Canada Centre.

Midway through the first period of Toronto's 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Maple Leafs announced Sundin will have his No. 13 raised to the rafters on Feb. 11.

It's been nearly four years since Sundin last wore a Leafs jersey, but the 19,526 in attendance let him know how revered he remains in the city. Fans gave the former Leafs captain a standing ovation that lasted the entire TV time out.

The announcement came a bit prematurely for the Leafs thanks to a Swedish newspaper spilling the beans, and a bit prematurely in general as Mats isn't HHOF eligible (1st ballot btw. Book it.) until the class of 2014. Clark had to wait 8 years; Gilmour 5. Sending Mats to the rafters after less than 4 years away (1 with the Canucks I might add) just seems to early to me, I dunno.

Also Kadri, get rid of the 13 on the Marlies.
