Who Conducts the Leafs Symphony? (Allegro!)

The final horn blew. It was loss number five (in a row). The Pittsburgh Penguins hammered the Toronto Maple Leafs last night by a score of 6 to 1.

Hockey commentators are trying to explain why the Leafs are playing so poorly this year. "There's so much talent on that team."

Yes, there are some good players. A symphony orchestra can be made up of a lot of talented musicians, but without a good conductor to lead them, they will be a competent group at most. Perhaps the Leafs do have more than one 'first chair', but the guy at the podium is a mystery. There's talk of Maestro Mike Babcock being replaced if his ensemble doesn't start making beautiful music soon.

Who really conducts the Toronto Maple Leafs?
