The Toronto Maple Leafs are a pretty bad hockey team. I mean, according to the standings, they're actually the worst hockey team in the NHL. That means we've got to savour those wins when they come; they're so few and far between.
And boy, did Frank Corrado savour last night's win against his former team, the Vancouver Canucks.

Since 2014 when the Leafs decided to get smart and not be stupid anymore, the list of players who will supposedly be migrating north to get in on this major rebuild seems to be growing by the day.
The organization's turn in the right direction started with the Shanahan hire and his two quick additions of Dubas and Hunter. And now with Lou and Babcock brought aboard as well, their sites seem to finally be locked in on winning...eventually.
The spin-off of this overhaul has apparently now turned Toronto into some sort of Miami Heat-like players' paradise where everyone comes home to the center of the hockey universe to win championships. It's about damn time, I say.

Hope: It's the worst, it's the best, and it's why I watch the Maple Leafs.

Tonight was 'Retro Night' in Vancouver. The Canucks celebrated by wearing their absolutely gorgeous black 'flying skate' jerseys from the early 90's while the Leafs celebrated by playing like a Toronto hockey team from the early 90's. That is to say, the Leafs didn't look totally embarrassing tonight, despite dressing what appears to be an AHL team. Toronto takes it, 5-2.

It sounds like Toronto's going to be a busy place in the holiday season of 2016-17. While hosting the Canadian group of the 2017 World Juniors in the round robin, another piece of news dropped today about the Leafs organization's second-ever outdoor game, and first at home.
