    Day to remember

    By LANCE HORNBY -- Toronto Sun
      The Maple Leafs, the Stanley Cup and a downtown parade made for a spooky spumoni of hockey memories yesterday.
     Frank Mahovlich clearly remembered his first ride in a Leafs' motorcade, that coming in 1962 in celebration of the the first of three consecutive Cups.

    Stay positive for oldtimers' sake

    By LANCE HORNBY -- Toronto Sun
      The Maple Leafs hope the focus tonight will be on alumni who are here, not vice versa.
     The decision of high-profile players such as Dave Keon to refuse the invitation to attend the Leafs' departure from the Gardens last week -- and the absence of names such as Teeder Kennedy, Paul Henderson, Cliff Fletcher, Howie Meeker and Rick Vaive -- took some steam out of the ceremony.

    Everyone, even Baun, loves a Leafs parade

    By LANCE HORNBY -- Toronto Sun
      Bob Baun wasn't going to miss this parade.
     The gritty defenceman who helped the Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup four times in the 1960s -- once on a fractured ankle -- declined to take part in the club's most recent victory parade in 1967. But he was prominent yesterday.

    Ice man cometh upon hi-tech solutions

    By LANCE HORNBY -- Toronto Sun
      Bad ice is a hot topic among National Hockey League players, but the folks running the Air Canada Centre are keeping cool as opening night approaches.
     "Pat (Quinn) and the players have had eight or nine practices on the ice and so far, so good," project director Tom Anselmi said yesterday. "Our new building has air conditioning, humidity control and and infra-red equipment to monitor the temperature."

    Producer stands by post-game effort

    By ROB LONGLEY -- Toronto Sun
      It could have been shorter and it could have been sweeter, but the producer of the Maple Leaf Gardens' farewell party said Saturday's show was a success.
     John Brunton, whose Insight Productions teamed with the Leafs and Hockey Night In Canada to produce the post-game ceremony that was broadcast coast-to-coast on CBC, said the show met its objectives.
