Maple Leaf Gardens is a historic arena in Toronto's Garden District, now converted into a massive supermarket and an athletic centre for Ryerson University. One of the cathedrals of hockey, it was home to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL from 1931 to 1999. The Leafs won 11 Stanley Cups from 1932 to 1967 while playing at the Gardens. MLG was home to basketball's Toronto Huskies (1946–1947), the Toronto Marlboros of the OHL, the Toronto Toros of the WHA (1974–1976), the Toronto Blizzard of the NASL (1980–1982), the Toronto Shooting Stars of the NPSL (1996–1997), and the Toronto Rock of the NLL (1999–2000). The NBA's Buffalo Braves played 16 home games at the Gardens in four seasons from 1971 to 1975. The NBA's Toronto Raptors played six games at the Gardens from 1997 to 1999. It was also one of the few venues outside of the United States where Elvis Presley performed in concert (April 2, 1957). In 1972, Maple Leaf Gardens hosted game 2 of the famous Summit Series between Team Canada and the USSR. Team Canada won the game 4–1. (from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maple_Leaf_Gardens )... Besmirched and haunted by incidences of the sexual abuse of young players by the coaches they trusted, MLG needed a transformation. Interestingly, what has been preserved is in an eerie semi-darkness.
