Afternoon Line- Brad Marchand

"I have tried extremely hard over the last four years to get away from the reputation I've had. I think I've done an extremely good job at that. I know early on I crossed over the line a lot of times. It's unfortunate that continues to haunt me."

"I feel I've completely transformed myself from the player I was to a player that should be respected in this league for his abilities. I understand completely the history that I have. I just was hoping they would have seen past that. Obviously that wasn't the case."

-Brad Marchand iva Fluto Shinzawa tweets.

The Leafs Know It Is All About The Playoffs

from Lance Horby of the Toronto Sun,

They currently reside in the most exclusive neighbourhood of Canada’s NHL teams, high enough on the hill to see the tire fires in Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver.

But until the Maple Leafs actually get back to playoffs and win a round or two, they know they’re still in a glass house. Unless it’s reinforced, best not to throw stones at the less fortunate.

From Sheldon Keefe to Jack Campbell to Carlton the Bear (if he could speak) expect a batch of banal quotes about the heady times in November. Even if Toronto could boast a team record calendar month of 12 wins, tying a club mark with seven straight road victories and owning a piece of first overall to start this week.

“We had good stretches last season … that’s why it’s important to just focus on one day at a time and find consistency,” Keefe said before the Leafs spent Monday flying home from California. “That’s what we’ve talked about since Day 1. It has been a great November, (but) the calendar is going to turn here. We’ll get back home after a long trip and have a really good team waiting for us (Colorado on Wednesday).”
