SPOTTED BY: Leafs fans throughout the the city.
WHERE: In newspapers, and on the official Maple Leafs website.
WHAT: The Maple Leafs had a rough year. Ron Wilson, the team’s coach, was fired at the tail end of a disappointing regular season, and his replacement, Randy Carlyle, was unable to turn the Leafs around in time to lead them to the playoffs. Today, the team’s ownership took the unusual step of placing a letter of apology to fans, signed by MLSE board chair Lawrence Tanenbaum, in local newspapers, including the Sun and the Star. The letter is excerpted above. We have it in full after the jump.
