Montreal Canadiens just squeaked past Boston last night in the first round but…


…the last time the Toronto Maple Leafs went all the way, winning the Stanley Cup, was the year before the assassinations of Martin Luther King Junior and Robert Kennedy – Canada’s Centennial and the year of Montreal’s world fair Expo ’67.

This is where the Leafs played back then. It was 37 years old at the time, built in 1930, is no longer used by the team, and plans for a supermarket to be built within the historic site are still just that – plans.

  1. They still haven’t figured out what to do with the old building? That supermarket idea has been around since 1999 or 2000…

    I wrote something a while back about the effect global warming is having on the NHL… in the spring the Leafs are out earlier and earlier every year.

    Go Sens Go… sigh.
