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 Conacher, Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Frank Mahovlich, Tim Horton, Dave Keon, Borje Salming, Mats 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
