Some clubs are just properly run. Others like the Mets & Leafs aren't. no matter how much opportunity there is for both clubs, they can't ever seem to get the hell out of their own way. Both clubs are looked at as laughing stocks. Not just because they don't win, but because they have no excuse as to why they can't build a winner.
With that said, I'd gladly trade John Tavares & our great prospect pool (which is all we really have) for their situation. Hell at least they know they'll still have a team in 2015. Christ, they know they'll still have a team in 2050.
If you're going to compare the Leafs to any MLB it's the Cubs. Haven't won in ages yet they still sell out games.
