The Leafs are both the NHL‘s most popular and most valuable franchise. With 13 Stanley Cups, only their rivals, the Montral Canadiens have more although their last cup came in 1967 before the expansion era. Since the NHL lockout that wiped out the 2004-05 season, the Leafs have struggled mightily and have become the subject of criticism. They have, however turned over a new leaf (pun intended) with astute new management and promising young players as the ever-passionate fanbase keeps looking for hope.
