As I understand it, they've said that they're looking at replacing the event. This is more of an issue with running the event at the venue than anything else(ACC). The Leafs are still donating the money to Easter Seals. The cost to the charity and the cost to MLSE was too much w.r.t. the money raised.

It is, however, a horrible PR situation. I think they could have handled it much better (making an announcment before being leaked to the press).
