"We all want to be a winner. Why is it that we are finding losers?"

Forget the grainy preservation of the glory that was 1967 and Saturday night's planned coast-to-coast propaganda hour, this mildly coherent monologue sums up the hopes and dreams of leaf nation.

It actually gets worse for the leafers. While it can be pointed out that 80 years have passed since a cup was raised in Ottawa, if you subtract out the 59 years that the franchise wasn't around it's actually more like 21 years. So for a more appropriate frame of reference it would be like comparing the Senators last franchise win in 1986 to the leafs last franchise win in 1967.
