Timothy J. Leiweke — remember him? — left his position with the Kings and AEG last season to take a similar job with the Toronto Maple Leafs and their parent organization. He always talked a good game in Los Angeles and finally delivered with a Stanley Cup championship team in 2011-12. Can he do the same for the Maple Leafs?
Well, he told the Washington Post he has the victory parade all mapped out.
“I have it planned out and it’s going to be fantastic,” Leiweke told the Post. “If you can all dream about that and get that in your mind, we’ll have something we’re all driven toward.
“I don’t want the players walking in the hallways of the Air Canada Centre and seeing pictures from 1962,” he added. “Get rid of those pictures and tell them, this is your legacy.”
FYI: The Maple Leafs last won the Stanley Cup in 1967, the longest drought in the NHL.
