This is a history of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League. ...

Early years (1917-27)

The National Hockey League was formed in Montreal, Quebec in 1917, from teams formerly belonging to the National Hockey Association, because of a dispute with Eddie Livingstone, owner of the Toronto Blueshirts. However, rather than expel him, they created a new league without him. Nickname: Motto: Concordia Salus (well-being through harmony) Coordinates: , Country Province Founded 1642 Established 1832 Government  - Mayor Gérald Tremblay Area [1][2][3]  - City 365. ... This article is part of the Evolution of the NHL series. ... Edward J. Livingstone (September 12, 1884 - September 11, 1945) was the founder of the Toronto Blueshirts, a predecessor of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL. Livingstone was born in Toronto, Ontario as the youngest of three children. ... Toronto Blueshirts were a National Hockey Association team which played in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ...


As Quebec would not play, the other clubs wanted a team in Toronto. The NHL granted a 'temporary' franchise for Toronto to the owners of Arena Gardens, using the Blueshirts' players for the season until the dispute was resolved. Under manager Charlie Querrie and coach Dick Carroll, the Toronto team won the Stanley Cup in the NHL's inaugural season. For the next season, the Toronto Arena Hockey Club was formed. Mounting legal bills from the dispute forced the Arenas to sell most of their stars, resulting in a horrendous five-win season in 1918-19. The Arenas' .278 winning percentage that season is still the worst in franchise history. Mutual Street Arena, also called Arena Gardens and initially just the Arena, was a hockey arena in Toronto. ... The Stanley Cup The Stanley Cup (French: ) is the championship trophy of the National Hockey League (NHL), the major professional ice hockey league in Canada and the United States. ...

The franchise was put up for sale and Querrie put together a group that mainly consisted of the people who had run the senior amateur St. Patricks team in the Ontario Hockey Association. The new owners renamed the team the Toronto St. Patricks (or St. Pats for short) and would operate until 1927. The St. Pats would win the Cup in 1922. The jersey colour was changed from blue to green. A typical OHL hockey game. ... The 1921-22 NHL season was the 5th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...


The Conn Smythe era

Querrie lost a lawsuit to Livingstone and decided to put the St. Pats up for sale. He gave serious consideration to a $200,000 bid from a Philadelphia group. However, Toronto Varsity Graduates coach Conn Smythe put together an ownership group of his own and made a $160,000 offer for the franchise. With the support of St. Pats shareholder J. P. Bickell, Smythe persuaded Querrie to reject the Philadelphia bid, arguing that civic pride was more important than money.

After taking control on Valentine's Day 1927 Smythe immediately renamed the team the Maple Leafs. (The Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team had won the International League championship a few months earlier and had been using that name for 30 years.) Initial reports were that the team's colours would be changed to red and white,[1] but the Leafs were wearing white sweaters with a green maple leaf for their first game on February 17, 1927[2] The next season, the Leafs appeared for the first time in the blue and white sweaters they have worn ever since.

Led by the "Kid Line" (Busher Jackson, Joe Primeau and Charlie Conacher) and coach Dick Irvin, the Leafs would capture their third Stanley Cup victory during the first season in their new digs, vanquishing the Montreal Maroons in the first round, the Boston Bruins in the semis and, in the Stanley Cup Finals the hated New York Rangers. Mr. Smythe took particular pleasure in defeating the Rangers that year; he had been tapped as the Rangers' first general manager and coach in the Rangers' inaugural season (1926-27), but had been fired in a dispute with Madison Square Garden management before the season.

The Leafs' star forward, Ace Bailey, was nearly killed in 1933 when Boston Bruins defenceman Eddie Shore checked him from behind into the boards at full speed. Maple Leafs defenceman Red Horner was able to knock Shore out with a punch, but it was too late for Bailey, who was by now writhing on the ice, had his career ended. The Leafs would hold the NHL's first All-Star game to benefit Mr. Bailey.

1940s: A Second Decade of Success

Toronto looked sure to suffer a similar fate in 1942, down three games to none in a best-of-seven final in 1942 against Detroit. However, fourth-line forward Don Metz would galvanize the team, coming from nowhere to score a hat trick in game four and the game-winning goal in game five, with the Leafs winning both times. Captain Syl Apps had won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy that season, not taking one penalty and finishing his ten-season career with an average of 5 minutes, 36 seconds in penalties a season.

Apps told writer Trent Frayne in 1949, "If you want me to be pinned down to my [biggest night in hockey but also my] biggest second, I'd say it was the last tick of the clock that sounded the final bell. It's something I shall never forget at all." It was the first time a major pro sports team came back from behind 3-0 to win a best-of-seven championship series.


Three years later, with their heroes from 1942 dwindling (due to either age, health, or the war), the Leafs turned to lesser-known players like rookie goalie Frank McCool and defenceman Babe Pratt. They would upset the Red Wings in the 1945 finals.

The powerful defending champion Montreal Canadiens and their "Punch Line" (Maurice "Rocket" Richard, Toe Blake and Elmer Lach), would be the Leafs' nemesis two years later when the two teams clashed in the 1947 finals. Ted "Teeder" Kennedy would score the game-winning goal late in game six to win the Leafs their first of three straight Cups — the first time any NHL team had accomplished that feat.

The 1950s: The Barilko Curse

The Leafs and Habs would meet once again in the finals in 1951, with all five games going to overtime. Tod Sloan scored with 42 seconds left in the third period of game five to send it to an extra period, and defenceman Bill Barilko, who had scored only six goals in the regular season, scored the game-winner to win Toronto their fourth Cup in five years. Barilko's glory, however, was short-lived: he disappeared in a plane crash near Timmins, Ontario barely four months after that historic moment. The Leafs would not win the Cup again that decade.

In 1979-80, they finished five games under .500 and only made the playoffs due to the presence of the Quebec Nordiques, a refugee from the WHA, in the Adams Division. For the next 12 years, the Leafs were barely competitive, not posting another winning record until 1992-93.

Resurgence in and after the 1990s

Mr. Ballard died in 1990. A year later, supermarket tycoon Steve Stavro, a longtime friend, bought the team from Ballard's estate in partnership with the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan. Unlike Ballard, Stavro hated the limelight, rarely interfered in the Leafs' hockey operations, and hired experienced hockey professionals, starting with ex-Calgary Flames GM Cliff Fletcher after 1991-92.

In 2002, they would dispatch the Islanders and Ontario rivals, the Ottawa Senators, in the first two rounds, only to lose to the Cinderella-story Carolina Hurricanes in the Conference Finals. The 2002 season was particularly impressive in that the Leafs had many of their better players sidelined by injuries, but managed to make it to the conference finals due to the efforts of lesser-known players who were led mainly by Gary Roberts, who put up a heroic fight, although they would eventually fall to the Hurricanes.

Despite a late-season surge, which included more NHL ice time for third string goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin who had spent the season with the Toronto Marlies, the Maple Leafs' American Hockey League affiliate, the Leafs were eliminated from playoff contention for the first time since 1998 on April 15, 2006. This marked the first time that the team missed the playoffs under coach Pat Quinn, and as a result he was fired along with assistant coach Rick Ley five days after the regular season ended. Defenceman Aki Berg left the team shortly afterwards. Paul Maurice, the coach of the Marlies and a former NHL head coach who led the Carolina Hurricanes to victory over the Leafs in the 2002 Eastern Conference Final, was announced as Pat Quinn's replacement.

In the 2006-07 season, the Maple Leafs were led by veterans such as Mats Sundin, Bryan McCabe, and Tomas Kaberle and were assisted by young players such as Kyle Wellwood, Matt Stajan, and Alex Steen. Some additions to the team were Hal Gill (Boston Bruins), Pavel Kubina (Tampa Bay Lightning), and Michael Peca (Edmonton Oilers).

"Leafs Nation"

Maple Leafs fans worldwide are known by the collective nickname "Leafs Nation"; the club uses this term as the title of its website. Conversely, there is an equally passionate dislike of the team by fans of several other NHL teams. In November 2002, the Leafs were named by Sports Illustrated hockey writer Michael Farber as the "Most Hated Team in Hockey." He even mentioned that many rival fans believe that the referees were partial towards the Leafs, although the team's consistent position near the top of the penalty minutes statistics over the years may disprove that theory.

Rivalries

The Maple Leafs' greatest rival is the Montreal Canadiens, given the long history of Original Six matchups and playoff meetings between the two clubs. The fact that Montreal is Canada's most populated French-speaking city also gives the rivalry a nationalistic flair, which is perhaps best captured in the popular Canadian short story "The Hockey Sweater" by Roch Carrier.

The rivalry between the Leafs and the Ottawa Senators, known as The Battle of Ontario, has heated up since the late 1990s, owing in no small part to the Canadiens' struggles during that period.

A large contingent of Leaf fans typically travels the short drive to Buffalo for road games there, giving them a somewhat neutral setting. The Buffalo Sabres are a professional ice hockey team based in Buffalo, New York. ...


The Leafs also maintain a traditional Original Six rivalry with the Detroit Red Wings. The teams' close proximity to each other (the two cities are just 230 miles apart) and a number of shared fans - particularly in markets such as Windsor, Ontario - means the rivalry is found more in the crowd than on the ice; since the Maple Leafs moved to the Eastern Conference in 1998, the two teams have faced each other less often each season.

Retired numbers

The Leafs have a policy of retiring numbers only for players "who have made a significant contribution to the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club and have experienced a career-ending incident while a member of the Maple Leaf team". Barilko (whose career ended with death in a plane crash)[5] and Bailey (whose career ended with a severe head injury)[6] met the criteria. These two numbers were not officially retired until October 17, 1992. Ron Ellis received permission from Bailey, by the time of his career the Leafs' Director of Scouting, to wear number 6.

Honoured numbers

In 1993, the Leafs began a policy of honouring their greatest players by declaring their number an "Honoured Number" rather than retirement. MLSE CEO Richard Peddie formed a committee in 2005 to study the issue and announced the decision to continue with the honoured number program late that year, citing a desire to allow current players to build upon the legacy of those numbers.
