    Howie Meeker for one - in the summer of 1957 for a few weeks until he punched out Stafford Smythe (so Meeker says).

    Was Dryden ever general manager - I know he was the president but I didn't think he was GM. Although I think he would have been able to make some great deals if he was - he could have some kind or rambling story which uses way to many metaphors and lull the other GMs into a false sense of security and then strike.

    Hap Day was gone from the Leafs after the 1956-57 season and Howie Meeker was the GM in the summer of 1957. Stafford Smythe then ran things along with coach Billy Reay before Punch Imlach was hired.

    Doesn't anyone remember when Dryden couldn't find a GM to hire? There were 4 GMs at that time - Dryden, Mike Smith, Bill Watters and Anders Hedberg.

    By the way, the present GM should be called - John 'Floyd Smith' Ferguson for all the bonehead moves he has made.
