Leiweke: no Winter Classic in Canada 'shows a lack of respect'
President and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Tim Leiweke spoke to media Wednesday afternoon and unleashed some plans for the franchises under the MLSE umbrella.
While he spoke about spending $25,000 on upgrades to the Air Canada Center, he also said a revamp of BMO Field would allow expansion for 40,000 fans and a Winter Classic.
The CEO also confirmed the Maple Leafs are "going after" the World Cup of Hockey, Winter Classic, NHL Draft, and a NHL All-Star game.
