But was he a better leader?

I don't think so.

At least Alfredsson was able to take his team past a Conference final and into the Stanley Cup Finals, which Sundin was not able to do.

As for being captain of team Sweden, it's not necessarily the best player, but mostly the one with the most international experience, and Sundin was nearly two years older that Afredsson, and was a pretty good player too.

When they were on the same team, Sundin was captain, was Alfy even an A?

Pretty clear who the better leader was.

Alfredson was a very talented player. But I always loved Sundin's game a lot more. He was a force around the net.
- Pecafan Fan

No doubt Alfy had skill, and he had a good edge to his game, but Sundin was just an absolute beast.

I dont care about pundits or standings right now

just that the Leafs are playing a more sustainable style of hockey (unlike last season) .. not relying heavily on sv% and unsustainable play

- senstroll



Perhaps you should pay a little more attention to the standings right now, as year after year, the teams in playoff positions just after US Thanksgivings are the almost always the teams that go on to the Playoffs at the end of the season. You should be felling good that the leafs are in a playoff spot today as the odds the make the playoffs is pretty good, just shy of 70%.

leafs are holding down a playoff spot, at a point in the season when many pundits say that "if you're in a playoff spot just after US Thanksgivings, odds are pretty good that you're gone to make the playoffs.


So these teams in the East are.

Tampa
Montreal
Detroit
Pittsburgh
NYI
NYR
Boston
toronto

These same pundits say that "if you're double didgits out of a playoff spot (at this time) you're pretty much not gonna make the post season).

These teams in the East are

Carolina
Columbus

and I would include the Sabres, though only 9 points out, but have played one more game than the leafs.

- Doppleganger

The only reason the Leafs have a shot at making the playoffs is because the East is so weak. Toronto has had a ton of stinkers so far this year.

typical Senators game. They dominate the first and third periods, but are totally playing the whole second period in their own end. '

Islanders benefit from terrible giveaways, and score off a Senators skate in overtime.

Lazar looking very comfortable each and every game, but still think he'd benifit from going to the WJC, and there are some roster moves that would be required if he's kept around instead.

They average about 28.5 shots per game, which, by the way, is more than the Canadiens do.
