Darryl Sittler, Johnny Bower Join Teeder Kennedy on Leafs' Legends' Row

The Toronto Maple Leafs fantastic new statue series honouring legends from the team's glorious past now includes Darryl Sittler and Johnny Bower. The statue series opened with Teeder Kennedy being the first honouree.

The statues will honour "10 or 11" Leafs greats from the past. Sittler, Bower and Kennedy are obvious inclusions. Other serious candidates include  King Clancy, Charlie ConacherSyl Apps, Turk BrodaFrank MahovlichTim HortonDave Keon, Borje SalmingMats Sundin, Doug Gilmour and maybe Wendel Clark.

It remains to be seen if the statues will be limited to strictly players. The team really should take this opportunity to also honour franchise founder Conn Smythe
