Short History of Toronto Maple Leafs
It was during the inaugural season of Toronto Arenas in 1917 when Toronto Maple Leafs joined the NHL. In the next eight seasons, Toronto franchise became St. Patricks then on 1927 this eventually settled in Maple Leafs.
In 1919-1920 the Toronto Maple Leafs was re-emerged. This is the time when there is new name and new owners, renaming it Toronto St. Patricks. This name was chosen in the hope of enticing the Irish large population of the city in attending home games.
For the second season of the team, they are able to achieve the Stanley Cup for the 2nd time, beating again the millionaires. Such series was packed with first by the time Babe Dye scored the record of 9 goals for five games then awarded the penalty shot for the first time. After the next seasons, the team was unable to achieve championship thus they produces a number of victories and made a foundation of winning the Toronto franchise.
Conn Smythe made historic changes when he bought the St. Patrick. He quickly prohibited the team in moving into Philadelphia by changing the team into Toronto Maple Leafs. The team colour is also changed into white and blue. Their name “Maple Leafs” was taken from the fighting unit in World War 1 which is called the “Maple Leaf Regiment”.
After those changes, Toronto returned to be on top of NHL (1932) when they beat Rangers with three consecutive games in sweeping the series of “best of five”. This was the first victory of the franchise by the time it became Maple Leafs. They became contender yet did not again win the Cup until 1942.
The team played well throughout the 1940s. They became competitive yet achieved the peak of success in 1960s. They are able to won 3 successive Cups within 1962-1964. Thus, they did not duplicate the success they had before.
