Evening Line- Larry Tanenbaum

“I’ve been at this 21 years. As I’ve told you before, I’ve been on the other side of the ledger for a long time. And this is a lot of fun, being where we are now. Management, coaches, the kids, like I said, they are delivering what we want Toronto Maple Leafs hockey to be.

“We all know what the goal is — a Stanley Cup. And soon. Could you imagine?”

-Larry Tanenbaum, chairman of MLSE.  Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun has much more from Tanenbaum on the Leafs.

Afternoon Line

“From an ownership level we look at the long term,” we want to be absolutely competitive, super competitive each and every year.

“If you asked us if you were to pay for a Stanley Cup team this year, but you were to be lousy for the next five years, would you do it? The answer from the ownership point of view, absolutely not.

-Leafs co-owner Larry Tanenbaum.  More by Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star.

Tanenbaum said Yzerman, a vice-president of the Red Wings who is learning the hockey business under general manager Ken Holland, need not apply. He said the Leafs will not be hiring a second consecutive rookie GM, given the team’s decline under John Ferguson, who was fired last January.

“Steve needs to be a general manager some place (else),” said Tanenbaum, who stopped by the Leafs’ practice on Thursday. “We don’t want a rookie.”
