Loose Leafs; Quirky Players in Toronto Maple Leafs History

I'd like readers to comment on some of the more peculiar, interesting, strange, addicted or otherwise tragic or unusual Toronto Maple Leafs from decades past.

Here are some names to start the list:

Brian Spencer - Probably my favourite Leaf for awhile when he was in his prime, Google his life story and you will be fascinated and saddened.

John Kordic - Another player who like Spencer died so very young, Kordic played in an era when the NHL was confused about its direction and the Leafs were a Ballardian shamble.

Jim Dorey - Don't know anything about his life, but I remember clearly his first NHL game, where he drew 48 minutes in penalties.

Forbes Kennedy - In a couple of NHL playoff games in Boston where the Maple Leafs were blown out by scores of 7-0 and 10-0, Forbes Kennedy had half a dozen fights, including four in one game, three with Bruins and one with a linesman! True story; my uncle Bucko Trainor had taught Forbie how to fight on skates (this was in the day when you would dig in your skates, pull the opposing players sweater over his helmetless head and start swinging) back in PEI when Forbes was just starting out.

I am sure there are many more colourful Leaves of passion out there, and I'm trying to make a list of at least ten, so please post your suggestions for the wildest Leafs of all time. Teeder Kennedy, Tiger Williams, anybody else?
