A Name from the Past

But that is not to say he did not do things which have been a benefit to the organization to this day.  Under his watch, as people like to say, the Leafs drafted and signed some players who may yet become cornerstones of any success the club has in the future.  It’s not a long list, but an important one. 

Probably one of the least popular figures of the past decade is former Leafs GM John Ferguson, Jr.  But as Vintage Leaf Memories points out, his legacy isn't completely negative.  Three former JFJ draft choices played major roles for the Leafs this year, including James Reimer and Nikolai Kulemin.  Currently a scout with the San Jose Sharks, it seems that Ferguson may be remembered in a drastically different light five years from now.
