Carlton the Bear
For the first time in years Carlton the Bear will not be the most truculent member of the Maple Leafs franchise.
Carlton first debuted in 1995 and since then has invaded arenas across the league. He's improved his golfing the last couple seasons but that should change with the Leafs heading to the playoffs.
He clearly symbolizes this team the best. Cute and loveable but if he wants to he can tear your head off.
Other teams mascots are terrified. Check out the reactions of Ottawa's Spartacat and Montreal's Youppi when told that Carlton was coming for him.
Pure unadulterated fear.
