Stan Lee Slump's latest book, The Complete History of Toronto Maple Leafs Championships in the Last Six Decades, is a follow-up to his book The Complete History of Toronto Maple Leafs Championships in the Last Five Decades.
Stan Lee Slump salutes the die-hard fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the team with the longest Stanley Cup drought in National Hockey League history. Most fans have never experienced their team winning the NHL championship, while others recall an era when the organization was synonymous with hockey supremacy, and Stanley Cup victory parades were a tradition in Toronto. Despite it all, Leafs fans proudly wear their jerseys in a show of unwavering support for the team that has let them down decade after decade after decade after decade after decade after decade.
In a tribute to the anguish suffered by all Leafs fans, Stan Lee Slump brings new context and perspective on the Stanley Cup drought that began after the last Cup victory on May 2, 1967.
His most fervent hope for fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the most dedicated fans in hockey, is that a revised edition for the seventh decade will not be necessary.
