Once a Clown Show always a Clown Show he's a millionaire 50 times over with a heavily front loaded contract now he can do exactly what he wants when he wants and fans Be Damned.

He's a good coach who's just made coaches throughout the league that much happier but Leaf fans are still a bunch of pathetic patsies-it was ever thus.

Babcock was lured into the deal with the guarantee of having every spring off.

Perhaps a little too much credence given to Olympic wins. McLellan just completed a helluva job himself on the Worlds. Before Babcock, Pat Quinn. Winning on Team Canada is an expectation. Having the best talent pool, anything short of winning is failure. He won't be icing the same team with the Leafs. The jury is still out on Shanahan as well. So far he has been handed cozy NHL jobs and not proven much. He talks a good story but results = 0. Time will tell, but you don't win anything at a news conference. That's why they play the games.

Former Maple Leafs defenceman Gus Mortson dies
By Lance Hornby, Toronto Sun First posted: Saturday, August 08, 2015 06:34 PM EDT | Updated: Saturday, August 08, 2015 07:52 PM EDT
TORONTO - Four-time Stanley Cup winner Gus Mortson, called one of the meanest, but most effective Maple Leaf defencemen in team history, died peacefully on Saturday in Timmins, Ont., at age 90.
Part of a pairing known as the Gold Dust Twins with Jim Thomson in the late 1940s, he loved to hit, especially in the corners, putting fear into the opposition. He could also carry the puck, earning 91 points in 371 games as a Leaf.
Mortson, an eight-time NHL all-star, and Thomson were a big reason for three straight Toronto Cups between 1947-49. In the ‘47 final against Montreal, Mortson played one game with torn wrist ligaments after scoring the night’s first goal. He also had a winning goal against Detroit in the following year’s championship series.
Born in New Liskeard, Ont., he was nicknamed Old Hardrock and twice led the NHL in penalty minutes. After being part of the ‘51 Cup, the one time St. Michael’s College star was traded to Chicago, playing six more NHL seasons, not retiring until 1967. Post-hockey, he did well in his own food and beverage business and was a stockbroker.
Mortson was ranked 53rd by a panel in a book on the Top 100 Leafs, behind Eddie Shack and ahead of Tomas Kaberle.
It’s expected he’ll be honoured at a Leaf home game in the coming season.
