    As the NHL season opens, millions of long-suffering Toronto Maple Leafs fans begin their annual trudge toward another disappointing spring. At least that's the way it's been since 1967, when a quick, diminutive, exquisitely skilled Dave Keon, led the Leafs to their fourth Stanley Cup in six years. Musician and hockey writer Dave Bidini went on a quest to explore the enigma of Dave Keon, who has been estranged from the Toronto Maple Leafs -- and from the city that idolized him -- for the past four decades. Dave Bidini will be Michael's guest, to talk about his new book, Keon and Me: My Search for the Lost Soul of the Leafs.
