“Playing for Ron Wilson, there has not been a lack of effort. When we lose, it has not been a coaching issue.
“Going into the New Year, the positive thing I see is that we’ve been playing well pretty much for 50-54 minutes per game. But we always seem to have these clumps of mistakes which cost us. I thought we played a good game (Dec. 16) in Calgary. We were tied. Then they scored three goals in about a minute and that was it.
“We are one of three or four youngest teams in the league. Like I said, we play good hockey for most nights but just have these poor spurts. That’s no excuse. That’s like saying: ‘Other than the (obvious), Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?’ ”
-Toronto Maple leafs GM Brian Burke. More on the Leafs from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun.
