Leafs Looking Eerily Bare

Training camp is missing that large, taken for granted presence that was Mats Sundin. He leaves behind a huge void for leadership, but also in that spot he assumed season after season as the number one center.

It first hit me when I read that Wilson wants to give Mikael Grabovski, a relatively untapped prospect, the chance to fill the void. I've still got a hangover from the departure of Sundin leaving that place.

Though the 2007-2008 Leafs weren't the best team in the world, it was a relatively familiar gang. Gone now are the characters which we had all grown accustomed to - Sundin, McCabe and Tucker. We all know this was a good thing, but it's also quite hard to just start again. It's going to be a long, painful season, and I can only hope that in the next few years we will have a team that were not only proud of, but familiar with.
