Major Conn Smythe thought the name Toronto St Patricks limited their appeal to a small section of the Toronto population. He rechirstened the teams the Maple Leafs because he felt that the Maple Leaf was the national symbol (It wasn't yet on the Canadian flag and the idea for the flag came right off the Leaf's jersey!) He had worn Maple Leafs on his uniform during WWI
