The Toronto Maple Leafs franchise is worth over $1 billion, the most of any NHL franchise. Unfortunately this hasn't correlated to on-ice success. Playing mediocre hockey for years, the Leafs have finally opted to build the correct way. Instead of chasing high-priced free agents and trading for veteran talent in order to end a Stanley Cup drought that extends back to the last season of the six-team NHL in 1966-67, the Leafs are going with youth and allowing their young team to grow together into a contender.
With a coaching staff and management team committed to the process, they look to finally be on the right track.

How To Make Money Betting On Toronto Maple Leafs
It's hard to believe that at one time, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens were running neck and neck for the title of most Stanley Cups won by an NHL team. When the NHL expanded from six to 12 teams in 1967, the Leafs were defending Stanley Cup champions, having just won their 11th title. The Canadiens owned 13 Cups under the NHL banner.
Since expansion, the Canadiens went on to add another 10 Stanley Cup titles, while the Leafs haven't made a single Cup Final appearance since their 1967 triumph. But with a talented, young squad assembled around 2016 No. 1 overall draft choice Auston Matthews, the belief is that it may again be time to believe in the Maple Leafs.
