“I feel incredibly lucky. I mean, this when I say that I couldn’t be more excited to have this opportunity and privilege. I don’t ever want to play up the fact that I’m from here but I grew up a fan. In my 21-year career I had one eye on the Leafs, always had an interest in them, even when my interest was in beating them.
“This would mean so much to me, if we can put this together. It would certainly be something that I was most proud of.
“Going to the (league) and taking a step away from the game, not just going from playing for wins to coaching for wins, was a good lesson for me in the type of work that needs to be done in order to be successful, or to give yourself the best chance at being successful. I have a burning desire to make this work.”
-Brendan Shanahan, President of the Toronto Maple Leafs. More from Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star.
