The local press and fans are positively positive the Toronto Maple Leafs are going to go all the way this year: a Stanley Cup victory.
I've aged along with these grand proclamations.
Even fans and the press fail to learn from history.
My prediction: The Vegas Golden Knights will win Lord Stanley's beautiful cup in June of 2019.
The byproduct: That sparkling ice hockey club will show the Leafs how it's done.
