"The last goal he ever scored, won the Leafs the Cup."
You've probably all read the excellent Maple Leafs' version of The Essentials over at Puck Daddy (h/t to Bitter Leaf for doing the leg-work. We all thought it was an excellent idea and decided to borrow it. So I asked my fellow Leafs' fans—and Cam—to list off their Essential players, seasons, fights, swag and whatnot. Since we've got the time and space I decided to chunk it into a few pieces. Since I'm the smartest I'm going to be writing in-depth about what I consider to be the Essential Leafs. I'll also list my fellow bloggers' responses, and include some justification from those who went off the map with their selections. Feel free to post your own in the comments and disagree with everything we said.

Member of TLN, video blogger, and overall handsome young gentleman (who's clearly writing this) Steve Dangle sits down with Leafs legend Doug Gilmour at an event for the upcoming release of EA Sports' NHL 13. Dougie talks about gaming, the CHLPA, the upcoming (we hope) Winter Classic, his epic cow leggings, and more.

I bet Versteeg did this to Kessel.
I’m not going to say Randy Carlyle stole my idea, but he definitely has been picking up what I’ve been putting down. His desire to revamp the Leafs dressing room shows he knows a thing or two about exploiting cognitive biases.

Lost in the controversy surrounding one Sun TV idiot's comments about Randy Carlyle's revamping of the Toronto Maple Leaf dressing room is any sort of discussion on how good of an idea it is.
No, adding a few motivational posters isn't going to be the difference between the Leafs' going from a 13th place team to a 6th place team, but the club is in an extraordinarily unique situation generating the highest revenues in a salary cap system.
