EH



Can anyone tell me (other than the fact that their Canadian) why the hockey team from Toronto is called the Leafs and not the Leaves?



Is the whole Leaves thing just American/English?
Anyone? Anyone? Buler?

In answer to your question, as posed earlier in the dark smoky confines of a vestiage of times past on NY Ave, is like this: Because the Maple Leaf team name is a proper noun, the S is added rather than making it plural. The "logic" is that otherwise it wuld actually have to be the Maples Leaves, which is beyond odd.
