Interesting, Id not heard that before. Maple Leaf Gardens as well was left in a terrible state for almost a decade while MLSE, Loblaws & Ryerson fought one another over all kinds of nonsense. Though its great to see hockey return to the Gardens, so much more couldve been done with the Grand Old Dame.
