Toronto Maple Leafs tickets are on sale to see if the roster assembled this past summer is good enough to get the hockey team from the 10th place to the NHL postseason. Yes, the general manager may not have gotten quite the quality of free agents he wanted, but the team did add an incredible amount of new talent. TheSeats has Maple Leaf tickets to the Air Canada Centre to see if the busy offseason translate into regular season schedule success.
Add free agents Tim Connolly, Matthew Lombardi, and John-Michael Liles to a roster returning its top four scorers Ð Phil Kesssel, Clarke MacArthur, Mikhail Grabovski, and Nikolai Kulemin Ð and a goalie that may just broke through last season in James Reimer and what do you get? You get a Toronto Maple Leafs team on the verge of climbing the Northeast Division standings and into the Eastern Conference side of the NHL playoff picture.
Connolly and Lombardi add more scoring to the roster, which was much needed since the Maple Leafs finished in the bottom three in the league. The defensemen must protect the goal because even though Reimer posted a very good 92.1 save percentage but allowed 2.60 GAA.
The Toronto Maple Leafs began playing in 1917 and helped found the NHL as part of the "Original Six". Fittingly, the Maple Leafs have won the second-most championships with 13. However, the Toronto hockey fans have suffered since 1967, when the franchise last won the Stanley Cup. Instead, the Maple Leaf faithful have had to enjoy playing spoilers to their three main rivals Ð the Montreal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings, and Ottawa Senators.
The last Stanley Cup was won with a deep roster. Forwards Dave Keon, Frank Mahovlich, Bob Pulford and Ron Ellis scored more than 40 points. Defensemen Red Kelly, Tim Horton, and Larry Hillman scored more than 20. This Toronto team featured Terry Sawchuk and Johnny Bower in goal. TheSeats has the Toronto Maple Leafs tickets to enjoy what could finally be the season the franchise ends its drought.
