The Toronto Maple Leafs have left their fans without a rooting interest past the middle of April for the 5th Spring in a row. The league kicked in one more Spring possibly as part of some sort of promotion. Anyway, we here at PPP Amalgamated Heavy Industries, Kitten Ranch, Pug Manufacturing, and Phantasy Sports Conglomerate want nothing more than to help Leafs fans in their time of need as they struggle to find a team to support.
The Case Against Los Angeles
May 27th, 1993. Never forget.
The Case For Los Angeles
The Kings have a talented young team. In fact, I figure a lot of Leaf fans would love to see Toronto follow a similar climb into contention over the next few seasons. While their top scorer, Anze Kopitar, is out for the remainder of the season, there is still a lot left to like on the left coast. Drew Doughty and Dustin Brown headline a group that includes Wayne Simmonds, Jack Johnson, and Jonathan Quick (the Western Conference version of James Reimer). They're fast, physical, and exciting, and no one expects them to have much success. Hmmmmm...sounds a lot like a certain other team you're all familiar with. Sounds like a team that could use your support this spring.
The Sales Pitch
The Kings are completely doomed and have absolutely no hope... so hey, at least you guys are used to it.
Love me like you love Luke!
Do you think the Kings can upset the San Jose Sharks?
