WE'RE #1!!!!

Editor's Note: Who says the Leafs can't win anything? All it takes is for one bitter Habs fan to take potshots at the buds.

Who's the worst owners in the NHL? Tampa? Phoenix? Not even top 5 according the hockey hacks at SI *coughmichaelfarbercough*, who know that MLSE is the worst of them all!

Here's the criteria: 

* Team's success or failure on the field.
* Willingness to spend money to improve the team.
* Stability and capabilities of the front office and management.
* Amenities at the team's venue.
* Club's culture and interactivity with fans.

Hmm. Getting 60% of those right, as MLSE have done (hint, 2-4) may get you through high school, but in competing with the tremendous ownership and management you see everywhere in the league, it's only good enough for LAST. My comment, crossposted from the piece at Mirtle's:

I can’t argue with MLSE’s placement (well, I could, but I don’t care to); this, though is ludicrous:

as MLSE is too busy running too many sports properties and breaking ground on too many real estate projects to pay enough attention to the Leafs.

I dunno, hiring Burke and Wilson and getting the hell out of the way is the exact amount of attention I want Larry and Peddie paying.

This is the best Leafs coverage in SI since the 'Most Hated Team In the League' piece. Memories!
