Two dozen members of the Lakeshore Lions Club were scattered throughout the crowd that morning on Sept. 8, 2009.

A beaming Brian Burke walked to the podium as cameras flashed. The Lions looked on, marveling at what they done.

Ten years earlier, the volunteer group had wanted to add a second ice pad to their humble rink in south Etobicoke. Now, they were unveiling a $44 million, state-of-the-art, 260,000-square-foot, four-rink complex that Burke, general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, would dub the “Cadillac” of training facilities.
