A quote from Cathal Kelly of the Globe and Mail (November 20):
. . . let us look back on what was the most tranquil period in Leafs history that many of us have known. The team was decent. The fans were quiet. The path ahead looked full of hope. If a change is like a vacation, this was a holiday that went on for years. But it couldn’t last. Firing Babcock has returned the Leafs to normal operating service. So, please light your hair on fire now and plan to keep it that way for the foreseeable future. Possibly forever.
