The Waiting Game

book cover image Toronto and the Maple Leafs

Why is Canada's biggest city absorbed by a hockey team that has not won in 50 years? Toronto and the Maple Leafs tries to answer a baffling, perennial question.

Veteran Leafs columnist Lance Hornby looks at how Toronto and its team became one through two world wars, the Depression, the Harold Ballard years, and, until recently, some dysfunctional hockey operations.

With insights from Mayor John Tory to broadcasters Foster Hewitt and Joe Bowen, to the ushers, cleaners, and ticket scalpers.
