# 7   Mats Sundin

Young--22 years old  

Superstar--an exceptional talent, widely recognized and eagerly sought after for their services

In 1989 NHL Entry Draft, he was the first European-born player drafted first overall in NHL history He won three IIHF World Championships with Sweden in 1991, 1992 and 1998. He won Olympic Gold in 2006 in Turin. Named an All-Star every year  from 1996-2004..
With all these accolades, as a Leafs fan, here is my memory of Mats.

I guess being a Leafs fan has jaundiced me to his accomplishments. NO CUP. Looking back though, I'm going to have to say superstar.

The score (see what I did there) now reads
Young--6/7     Superstar  3/7
