Raking Leafs

Mixing metaphors and casting cliches about hockey and the Maple Leafs for the ether's pleasure since MCMLXVII.


Throw out the little black book

You know that movie, with that dude, from a few years ago, who has to come to terms with getting rid of his little back book before he takes the plunge? You know the one. I think some folks in the Big Smoke need to netflix that right quick.

The Bowman plan I like. Who wouldn't. The guy knows hockey. Period. He may need a few good soldiers to handle the details, but no one can question his hockey acumen.

But this rolodex run down of ex Leafs execs is plain farce. Fletcher? Please. That many consecutive top picks is tough to screw up. I don't want someone like him to come and possibly screw up the cap situation any more. This morning it is Quinn. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy. At the same time I don't think he's the right man for the job.

And what exactly is that job? A cap saavy talent evalutor. At least, that is who should handle the tasks immediately in the future. Of course, any one with that skill set wouldn't take a high profile position on an interim basis.

Which brings us full circle to the real problem. Ownership. Never let MLSE forget that until quarterly reports are no longer a primary concern the team will not be able to build up the culture of what a classy and winning franchise should be.

    With a title like that, I thought this post was about something else.
