Yes, I know. I'm just wondering why they spelled their name incorrectly. The plural of leaf is leaves not leafs.

You could email them and ask. Probably wouldn't be the first time they had been asked.

They didn't spell it incorrectly, You just ASS/U/MEd there was only one way to make leaf plural. :P

The Maple Leafs name was chosen in honor of the Canadian Maple Leaf Regiment from World War I. Since the regiment name is a proper noun, its plural is Maple Leafs and not Maple Leaves.
