The Leafs' definition of "success"

Spin spin spin. Larry Tanenbaum spoke at the beginning of this season about how the Leafs are the most successful franchise in the NHL, the flagship as it were of NHL teams.

Let's review, shall we - since the Leafs last won the Cup (1967) - the following teams have hoisted Lord Stanley's Mug - Montreal, Boston, Detroit, two teams from New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Edmonton, Calgary, New Jersey, Colorado and Tampa. And since the Leafs last played in the final - 1967 - St. Louis, Chicago, LA, Buffalo, Vancouver, Washington, Carolina, Anaheim and Florida have made it that far.

So, Larry, how do you define success?

More to come on this.
