It's Mats day in Canada!

"I always saw myself winning the Stanley Cup in Toronto – I wanted to do that," Sundin said Friday. "And also realizing it would never feel the same doing it somewhere else."

It is that loyalty plus Sundin’s unassuming, down-to-earth personality and inclusive nature that made him one of the Leafs captains most loved by his teammates. A lot of them will be seen Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre when the team honours Sundin by raising a banner with his No. 13 to the rafters to join those of other Leaf greats.

Thank you Mats. It wouldn't have been the same seeing you lift the cup with another team either.
