What Was Time Leiweke Thinking?

via TSN,

“There are players we have in our organization today whose numbers are off-the-chart good, and whose character is just terrible,” Leiweke told a group of business students at Ryerson University, just ahead of Leafs training camp. "I don't care how good your numbers are if you have bad character you are doomed for failure."

Now Bob McKenzie addressed the issue, via Hope_Smoke tweets (make sure to check out more in his recent timeline),

McKenzie "For a guy who has one foot out the door already, that's like throwing a molotov cocktail back into the building"

McKenzie "The two biggest insults you can give a hockey player is calling them a choker or say they have character issues"

McKenzie "f I was running MLSE I'd want a full explanation from Leiweke, & a tape of the interview

If I was running MLSE I’d want to tell security that Leiweke has been fired and is not allowed in the building anymore.

If anyone thinks Shanny can fix that organization they are deluded.

The Curse of Harold Ballard will go one for decades.

That organization is so stuck in a culture of failure it is ingrained in everyone from the bus driver to the owners.
