in fairness to us, we don't really look good before hitting the ice.

Perhaps if the Titanic caught fire a few miles before impact...

Leafs might be a joke but at least they are relevant. The Isles are both a joke AND irrelevant. Worst possible combination.

IMO that's exactly why the Leafs are the biggest joke. They make a ton of money. People leave season tix in their Wills. 25% of NHL players grew up as Leafs fans making it a desireable place to play. And they still can't win. You'd think with a monkey as GM they could've won at least one Cup in the past 45 years....

The difference is we can actually afford to watch non playoff hockey.

How are the leafs relevant? In a discussion about Original 6 teams that haven't won a cup since the late 60's. Or a discussion about teams that have a current longer Playoff-less spell then even the Islanders?

Simply because they are in the limelight 24/7. Sure, they suck and have been a joke on the ice for a while now but people still pay attention to the Leafs. They still get a ton of media coverage and they sell out their building every night with no problem. That's the definition of relevance. The Isles, outside of hfboards and a small smattering of fans aren't a blip on anyone's radar.

I understand we are talking about a Canadian market vs. a non-Canadian market but everything I said is true... unfortunately.

How much competition do the Leafs have for a fans sports dollar up there? The Blue Jays and Raptors. Its not like the Isles only compete for attention with just the Knicks and Yanks, and the Giants, Jets, Nets, Mets and Raggies don't exist. Sorry Twine your wrong on this.

If that's the case, then the Maple Leafs are the New York Jets of the NHL. Haven't won in years, they suck today, but everyone still talks about them.

In my eyes you are either relevant or you aren't. The Leafs are. There's no disputing it. The reasons why they stay relevant are irrelevant.

You pretty much just answered it for me by mentioning the Raptors and Blue Jays. Have those teams been relevant the past few years? Let's see what happens with the Jays this year with all those acquisitions but that stadium has been empty for years (minus games against the Yankees of course).

True... but for different reasons. Everyone talks about the Jets because Rex and Woody don't know how to shut up.

THe Leafs have the canadians as well. Huge rivalry between the two. Used to be the Nordiques, Canadians and Leafs as the three biggest rivals in Canada.
