Toronto Maple Leafs Fans Upset About Number of Americans on Team’s Roster


The Toronto Maple Leafs entered Saturday's game against the Bruins sitting atop the Eastern Conference. But some Leafs fans are still a bit unhappy.

Apparently, some Toronto fans are a bit concerned about the number of Americans on the team. For the first time in team history, the Leafs don't have a player from Toronto on their roster.

Of course, it's a small portion of the fan base that's upset, but it's enough of a sample to generate a reaction from general manager Brian Burke, who defended his transactions and pointed to the Canadian players on the roster.

NESN's Dale Arnold and Gord Kluzak discussed the strange development before Saturday's game, during which Kluzak suggested that Leafs fans worry more about whether the team is winning hockey games. After all, the Leafs haven't hoisted Lord Stanley since 1967.
