Tyler Bozak has arrived as Toronto Maple Leafs top center

  Let’s face it; playing hockey for the Toronto Maple Leafs is never an easy thing for anyone. Other than Phil Kessel, the last true superstar to come through Toronto was the legendary Mats Sundin.

The Toronto Sun's Steve Simmons believes that the Toronto Maple Leafs need to retire Dave Keon's #14 while Maple Leafs legend is still around, but as Simmons notes in his Sunday column, Keon's status as estranged from the Leafs' former and current ownership regimes complicates the situation significantly: The name is missing from the rafters.
