Time Capsule Reveals Leafs' Hidden History - and Mystery

Maple Leaf Gardens' walls talked earlier today.
Last summer, crews renovating the Leafs former home stumbled across a metal box that had been buried within the walls, back in 1931, while the arena was being built.
That box - it turned out - was a time capsule, put there by the Leafs' legendary former owner Conn Smythe.
And today, the time capsule was opened.
Joining me now to talk about what was inside is Sheldon Levy, the president of Ryerson University which is now a co-owner of the building.
