The Best Toronto Maple Leafs Player?

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

Darryl Sittler led the Leafs in scoring seven different times. Mahovlich did it five times; Keon three times. And for two and a half seasons of magic, no Leaf player was ever better than Doug Gilmour. But longevity disqualifies him from any meaningful debate about the top player in Leafs history. He had the top season.

But it's difficult, on this Hall of Fame weekend, on any scale, to find a Leaf greater than Sundin. Keon was the most complete player of the Stanley Cup years. Sittler the most explosive later on. Mahovlich the most talented.

Mats Sundin may not be the best Leaf of all ... the question is, who was better?
