This is the copy from an ad that ran yesterday in the Toronto Star page S7. I've just retyped it here and if there are any errors they are probably mine:
To Our Fans THANK YOU for your passionate support this season.
The loyalty of Toronto Maple Leaf fans is second to none. We have the best fans in the NHL and arguably in all of professional sports.
We end this season with a Maple Leaf team that is different from the one that stepped onto the ice last October. Today there is greater chemistry among our players. We have a hardworking team that is younger, faster and more entertaining.
Our offseason begins with an even stronger commitment to our blueprint for building a winning team. It starts with solid goaltending and a formidable defence.
We've acquired some of the pieces that support our philosophy - but our work is not complete. We expect to have a busy summer as we continue to build a winning team.
There is optimism in the Maple Leafs organization and we hope Leafs Nation shares our spirit.
Once again, thank you for your unwavering support. We look forward to seeing you in September.
Sincerely, The Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club.
