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. We want to see a consistently strong winning team over the long term. If it takes two or three years to rebuild this team, let that happen, to know that it's going to be a strong contending team for 10, 15 years.

Kevin McGran gives internet idiots of every bent a chance to post their favourite logical fallacy or dumbass stereotype about the Leafs and their fans. Of course it makes more sense for MLSE to want a shot at multiple Cups instead of blowing it's wad on just one.

I can't find it but Bill Simmons had a poll about that once and the vast majority agreed that one and done was preferable to trying to get multiple ones (like the Marlins have done twice) but smart ownership (which MLSE is trying to become...) is supposed to help save fans from themselves.
