Toronto Maple Leafs: Obama Runs Franchise; A Hypothetical Look

Sean PaddisonCorrespondent INovember 17, 2008

What would a Leafs team look like if it were run by President-Elect Barack Obama?

First of all, this whole article is an oxymoron because Obama is winner and the Leafs aren't. This makes it all the more difficult to write, but here goes;

Firstly, he'd have to hire a white-haired old guy to be his GM.

Re-enter Pat Quinn.

Second, he'd need to show he's bipartisan.

He'd hire Bobby Clarke as his coach.

Next he'd have to keep his female voters happy.

Enter Cassie Campbell as assistant coach.

After finishing hiring his coaching staff, he'd have to show that he means business with the economy.

Exit Peddie and Tannen-butt.

Enter Paul Martin.

Then he'd have to show that he has great knowledge of foreign policy.

He'd schedule a dinner to talk with the PRESIDENT of Canada.

Then to show he's a good sport he'd finish off by hiring Sarah Palin as official team masseuse.
