The Maple leafs are pushing to be what they were last century. A winner. Stanley Cups won last century, were through different hockey. Less teams, smaller players, lower payrolls, no salary cap, smaller pads etc. In this century the leafs have not won a cup or appeared in the cup final. Vancouver, Ottawa, Edmonton and Calgary have all made an appearance in the cup final. But not the leafs. The only other Canadian team to achieve this level of non-performance this century is the Montreal Canadiens (Habs). But let’s not compare the leafs to the Habs. The leafs have talent, and don’t ride a goalie with wonky knees. The leafs are young and talented through the tank and draft approach. Expect the cup within three years.
