Not trying to troll. But if the significance is just "the passing of the torch", it's pretty played out. Maybe I'm missing something? Is there some other significance?

If you don't think the Leafs have some of the all time greats of the NHL in their alumni, you're just completely bias.
"To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high."

From Flander's field and also the motto in the Habs dressing room. Has been since just after WW2.
