Blake Has Something to Prove

From Paul Hunter at the Toronto Star,

His biggest worry at the start of the season wasn’t hockey, it was wondering whether he would see his three children grow up.

“My heart wasn’t 100 per cent,” he said at the NHL awards gala last night. “It took me a while to figure out that everything was going to be okay.

“It was a tough year, coming to a new city and new team. When you come in you have high expectations. When you get hit hard like that – it’s like walking down the street and you get hit by a semi, blindsided – it was a frustrating year, it was a disappointing year. I’m excited to start fresh next year. I know I’m going to have this the rest of my life and I know I’m going to be okay.

“I have something to prove.”
