There's so much love for the Leafs in this city but after so much historical mismanagement and drama I think we have the right to be jaded. I'll still be in my seat on opening night and every other night I can be out to support our team, wearing my jersey in hope that maybe, just maybe MLSE will get its act together to get a GM, a coach and a captain to bring the cup back home.

Lord Stanley knows it's bloody well time, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I respect the punches not pulled . . . I'm not sure what instances there would be where it wouldn't be right to be jaded.

A lot of the problems are at the top with any organization. It magically does manifest from the top down . . . Knicks are a great example of that. So are the Lions. If a business has below-par ownership or leadership, it is felt by the lowest of employees . . . consumers, on outward. In this case, fans as consumers. It's not just terrible, it's turrible.

The problem with MLSE is that it's the most profitable NHL franchise out there. So long as the shareholders get their money back and some, nothing will ever change.

Anyway, I'm glad the Wings won. They've been my second favourite team of the league since I started to get into enjoying hockey. Back in '97, Draper rocked the cup along his (and my) hometown Greektown in the back of a Jeep and took it to dinner in a little diner dedicated to Motown.
