I agree. I feel really bad for kids growing up in Toronto.

When I grew up, I had Sundin and Carter to cheer for. The Sundin era was what made me a die-hard Leafs fan.

Kids these days will have nothing to capture their attention. Lockouts and missing the playoffs.

Plus demographics are changing. But regardless, all our teams suck. Raptors have been lost in the woods since Bosh left; Leafs had a tragic collapse last year; the Jays haven't made the playoffs since who knows when [although Bautista is generating some buzz]; and Toronto FC is the worst team in the MLS.
