Motivation For The Leafs

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

At 18 years old Taylor Hall faces a bank of cameras and microphones in front of his dressing room stall almost every single day of his professional life.

To his credit, it is a rare occasion when he slips up, as he likely did Monday when asked whether his Oilers will have to play better against the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday than they had in Sunday’s 12-shot effort, a 2-1 loss to Vancouver.

“Hopefully we can compete a lot harder. Because (Toronto) is a team that, if we do, it’s there for the taking,” said Hall, a 29-game veteran of the wars.

There for the taking, eh?

You can just hear Maple Leafs head coach Ron Wilson ripping that quote out of the morning paper and handing it to the dressing room attendant with a roll of tape.
