    I am watching HNIC, and they didn't really acknowledge Mats during the opening, but during the first period they pretty much stopped the game to thank Mats for all he did. The officals even backed off the puck drop to let him console himself during the standing ovation. Very classy, I am not a leafs fan, I'm a habs fan, but that was awesome what they did for him tonight.

    He may not be the player he once was, but he's a great leader and the fans see that and respect that. Props to Toronto!

    Well he fucking deserved it. You become the all time greatest scorer for one of the biggest teams in NHL history, you deserved a standing O.

    As they should, it would be pretty fucking lame of them to boo one of the best players to ever dress in a leafs jersey.

    I would have boooooed him.

    selfish guy fucked toronto for years. They coulda got draft picks and a good player or two at trade deadline last year.

    but no. they got NOTHING because matts didn't wanna leave when he knew they wouldn't make the playoffs.

    I just don't get it.

    and then he says fuck it, I don't want to go to training camp. I'll come after x-mas!

    and he goes to the canucks?

    wow, good luck playing the sharks and wings in the playoffs bud.

    I didn't see the beginning... I heard only occasional boos when he touched the puck.
