Dave Keon's Return
This may come as a surprise to younger readers of this site, but the Leafs once won the Stanley Cup. In fact, the Stanley Cup banner I'm staring at right now shows we won it eleven times, most recently in 1967.
The Conn Smythe Trophy winner in 1967 was none other than Dave Keon. Keon won four cups with the Leafs in total and is our second highest scorer of all time, at least until Mats Sundin catches him. Keon has also been holding a grudge since Harold Ballard screwed him in the mid 70s. I've read many an article in which Keon was quoted as saying he'd never attend another official Maple Leaf function. He's that bitter.
Never say never. Keon has agreed to appear in Toronto in a pre-game ceremony on February 17 at the Air Canada Centre to honour the 1967 Stanley Cup champion team. I never saw Keon play, but fans from the 60s will tell you he was the greatest Maple Leaf in the history of the franchise. He was also one of the most popular Leafs and it will be great to see him on February 17th.
Let the healing begin. Davey's coming home.
