Well, since Boba_Fett_2001 is too shy, here it goes: A once iconic franchise, reduced to desperate straits recently, mainly because of bad front office personnel. Last Cup: 1967. Unfortunately, suffered for years from ownership that knows that the team will make money no matter what, and therefore, they didn't bother to spend the money to make the team better. Recently hired Brian Burke as GM, which is a step in the right direction. However, as any Canuck fan can tell you, Burke is a good trader, but is not much of a drafter; however, since he's starting at the bottom, he doesn't have to be good for awhile. He says it will take five years. What do you think? Note: the Leafs are acutely unpopular in the rest of the country because HNIC is Leaf-centric, and we have to watch crappy Leaf games all season long. This is because the major population base is Southern Ontario. Ratings, you know. If the Leafs improved, it might not be so bad. We'll see. When asked how to improve hockey in Canada, Fred Shero once said: "Ban Leaf games." Snarky but true.
