Morning Discussion

The hockey season started for my Toronto Maple Leafs yesterday and while it wasn't a perfect game, it was a solid outing from a young club. (They beat Montreal 3-2). I'm still not used to the Leafs being young. I remember a time where the team's idea of getting better was to add aged superstars who couldn't produce the same numbers that made them famous.

I was listening to the radio before the game and a few Leafs fans were talking about how they think this is Toronto's year. Let's not go crazy. I certainly love the club--heck, I even used to work for the organization but more on that another time--but I know it will be at least a few years before the Leafs can make a legitimate run at the Cup.

How many years until they win? Well, it's been over 40 years since the last time. Let's just hope it's in my lifetime.
