Now updated to include both the disastrous 2009–10 season and the 2010–11 season, Al Strachan covers what’s gone wrong and why. With behind-the-scenes access and forty years of fascinating Leafs personalities and stories, Al discusses
* How the downfall started and how Harold Ballard perpetuated it
* Why fans were once again ill-served in the battle for club ownership after Ballard’s death
* The three wasted first-round draft picks in one season
* Why the Leafs passed on Wayne Gretzky
* How the Phil Kessel trade will impact the team for years to come
* Why Brian Burke may not be the saviour Leafs fans are hoping for
* And most important, what can be done—how other teams have had success and thrived in the salary-cap era
For fans who love the Leafs (and those who love to hate them), Why the Leafs Still Suck is a revealing and sometimes shocking inside look at professional hockey.
