Let’s See, Up Yonge Street To Bloor…

from Hugo Miller and Eric Lam of Bloomberg,

Tim Leiweke, the new chief of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd., is so confident the Toronto Maple Leafs will soon end a 46-year Stanley Cup drought that he’s already mapped a victory-parade route for the hockey team.

“I have it planned out and it’s going to be fantastic,” Leiweke said today in his first interview since taking over the Toronto-based sports group, which owns the city’s National Hockey League franchise. While employees at MLSE, which also owns the Raptors basketball team and Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC, were a little shocked he mentioned winning the Stanley Cup so soon after starting the job on June 3, he said the company has to focus on results.

“If you can all dream about that and get that in your mind, we’ll have something we’re all driven toward,” he said he told them.

The article actually does a hell of a job of explaining why there will never be a second NHL team in Toronto. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s value doesn’t double if there are two teams there.
