The 1940–41 Toronto Maple Leafs season was the Toronto franchise's twenty-fourth season of play.

OffseasonEdit

Conn Smythe was making preparations for his eventual tour of duty in Europe. He felt that Dick Irvin would not be strong enough to deal with player issues while he was gone and Smythe convinced the Montreal Canadiens to hire Irvin.[1] Smythe hired Hap Day as coach.
