PDP #118: Revolt in Leafs Nation

The way I see it, the Toronto Maple Leafs are the Chicago Cubs of hockey. Though they never take home the prize at the end - their last Stanley Cup victory was in 1967 - they still command fan loyalty and regularly play in arenas filled to the rafters. Or, at least, that's been the case for most of the last forty-two years. After a four-decade streak of mediocrity, it seems that Leafs fans are starting to get fed up with the team's status as perennial losers.

I found this graffiti on a Maple Leafs sidewalk ad yesterday at the corner of Queen West and Bathurst. The Habs are the Montreal Canadiens, the Leafs' traditional rivals and a team far more likely to win the Stanley Cup.
