Toto Mats, you're not in Kansas Toronto any more

Things haven't been going very well for the Vancouver Canucks and Mats Sudin since the free agent Swede joined the team in early January. Sundin had a pretty rough start to his career on the west coast. Through the first 10 games, he had 5 points, was a -6, had 16 penalty minutes and, worst of all, the Canucks were 2-5-3 during that stretch including last night's game. In addition, Sundin was in the penalty box when 3 opposition winning goals were scored.

The Vancouver fans were expecting more. Yes, even the Maple Leafs of the West have a higher threshold than this.
