That is your take.

But I don't see it that way. If your "take" ever became a perception, then fans in Ottawa would voice their concerns, and even take the step of stopping to buy tickets.

This would never happen in toronto, as the fans would continue to fill the building, paying the highest ticket prices in the NHL, no matter how bad the product on the ice was.

What was it that Ballard used to say.........................."as long as there are bums in the seats, it doesn't matter if I have bums on the ice"

- Doppleganger


First of all, Ottawa has been experiencing a decline in attendance in recent years right? Second, I'm not sure if you've noticed but you DO have bums on the ice.

They won 4 more cups than the Senators ever have with him as the chairman of the Leafs... so I'm assuming that yes, they did make it to the Cup Finals a few times.

Nice try, But Ballard did not become the "Majority Owner" of the leafs, until 1972.

When comparing Owners to Owners, being Chairman does not factor in.

The reality is When Ballard was the Owner, the leafs never made it to the Finals.

Sorry.

May 2nd 2014 will mark the 47th anniversary of the last time the leafs played in the Stanley Cup Finals.

47 Years since the last cup is sad.

Not as bad as "never" or 80-odd years ago, whichever you find more comforting as a Sens fan, but agreed, it is sad.

I said 47 years since they last played in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Senators played in the Finals seven years ago.

toronto maple leafs Playoff Chances
Did not play last night but their playoff odds dropped down down 0.2% to 34.2%


Don't worry though, as they would only need to play at a .722P% for the rest of the season to get to the 93 point mark, and that might just be enough to get into the playoffs.


Too bad they do not have any games in hand, over the teams they need to stay ahead of.

really sucks we traded away our 1st for a heartless 2nd liner...

oh wait, nope, we've still got or 1st.

Could you imagine, a team trading a top-10 pick for a nobody?

Geez, that'd be embarrassing.

Ottawa's first pick, in this years draft was traded to acquire a player who has scored 170 goals in the NHL.

He has played in 448 games, which equates to almost 5.5 seasons.

That's over 30 goals for every 82 games played.

So Ottawa has a player, that is now a far more valuable of an asset than whoever they would have selected in this years Draft, that has been characterized as less than average after the first three of possibly four players expected to be taken.

That asset (Bobby Ryan) can either be signed, or traded for a player(s) and or prospects that again will be far more valuable of an asset(s) than whoever they would have selected in this years Draft.



If you're talking about embarrassing, how about David Clarkson and his four goals for $5.25 MILLION for this and the next 6 years.

at least we didn't trade away our 1st for him!

Says a lot about Ryan that that's who you compare him to.
