There was a time when the hiring of a new President for the Toronto Maple Leafs would have mattered to me. I would have passionately researched the new hire's history, draft records, trades, business deals, professional associations -- just about everything materially imaginable to gain some insight into what the move might mean for the blue and white.
I haven't watched a game in almost three months.
The Leafs changed the culture but I don't think many of us contemplated that it would be a change for the worse.
Being wilfully ignorant, arrogant, consistently wrong, and unable to budget is now way to go through life and it's no way to run a sports team.
Shanahan's arrival is as meaningless to me as possession metrics are to Carlyle.
That time has long since passed.
