OT: Toronto pomposity

In his search for a new Leafs GM, Cliff Fletcher asked Detroit to speak to Ken Holland or his assistant GM and was refused. Fletcher said to the media that Toronto is the hockey capital of the world and that everyone wants the Leafs to do well.

I have news for you, Mr. Fletcher, quite a few fans outside Toronto resent the self-important anointing of the Leafs as "Canada's team."

Fletcher is not cute. At all.

Just a heads up, Fletcher is not involved in the GM search so he would not be the one phoning other teams.

That part is Richard Peddie and let me say for all Leaf fans rip him as much as possible.

Unless Toronto's about to riot over a 1st-round playoff series win, it cannot claim to be the hockey capital of anything.

Bullcrap. We have the second biggest fanbase in the world.

We don't really wonder why no one likes us anymore, either. Whether or not the reasons are just, we don't care. We know we're in it alone, and that's okay.

Fair enough, the animated one is indeed pretty new, I'll give you that.

I am surprised they don't ask to interview Timmins

I want the Leafs to do well. I want them to continue to do well at not winning a Stanley Cup.

Pssst. No-one really likes us, either. Go look on the Sens board.

We're more hated than you guys are. It's not close, either.

We're easily the most hated team in the NHL. That's not something I'm bragging about or happy about at all (it's quite annoying, actually) but it's the truth.

If you're not a Leafs fan in Canada, chances are you hate them with a passion. And you cannot say the same about Montreal.

Don't be ridiculous. When we're a playoff team, we blow you guys out of the water in terms of being hated.

The hate on your board and the Sens board when we were in the playoffs was pretty amusing to read. When we lost in the second round it was like both fan bases won a cup, I found it hilarious to an extent.
