As of Oct. 30, 2013, it’s been 17,044 days since the Toronto Maple Leafs last won the Stanley Cup in 1967. Please keep that in mind, and ask yourself: What if this gentleman had created this sign back then?

As we noted in last night’s Three Stars, this Toronto Maple Leafs fan attending their game at the Edmonton Oilers decided to have some fun with the fact that the Leafs have a 46-year, 7-month and 28-day Stanley Cup drought, vowing to marry his girlfriend when they next win the Cup.

Because both of those things might never happen in their lifetimes, you see.



Har Har.

And you wonder why girls become Blackhawks fans: Great sweaters, Patrick Sharp, the potential for matrimony within the next decade …

The sign … well, the sign hasn’t gone over well with hockey fans.

The Leafs sign vaguely reminds me of a sign I saw as an intern with Flyers. Basically was guy offering to pimp his girlfriend to Jeff Carter

I think the connection is "You're not funny, you're a massive jerk." — Jen (@NHLhistorygirl) October 30, 2013

So, this guy had a cheeky idea with the sign, but he didn’t think it through. Revealing you’re the Wendel Clark of commitment-phoebes isn’t all that endearing. For pete’s sake, he has the heart NEXT TO "LEAFS" AND NOT “GIRLFRIEND”.

She should go through his Internet history. Not for porn, though. For advanced stats websites. If he's been reading any of those, he knows full well they're not winning any time soon.

That said … is anyone else really really rooting for the Leafs now?

Seriously, Kessel: Bring the Chalice back to T-Dot this summer and then have a wedding ceremony written into Tim Leiweke’s parade route, as our stubborn friend is forced into a lifelong commitment thanks to the success of his favorite team.

Oh, and let her have Joffrey Lupul for the bachelorette party. That too.
