Optimistic in Toronto

From David Shoalts at the Globe & Mail, the optimism of Paul Maurice:

The man is the epitome of grace under fire. A font of cool rationale as the centre of the hockey universe explodes into panic.

Lost Kyle Wellwood to another operation on his sports hernia? Relax, coach Maurice says. Chad Kilger and John Pohl are here to carry the second line.

Vesa Toskala looked more like Red Light Racicot than the second coming of Curtis Joseph in the exhibition season? Not to worry, coach Maurice says. He and Andrew Raycroft will make the Leafs better in goal this season.

The defence as a group looks every bit as bad as last season? Hey, coach Maurice says, we’re just working a few kinks out.
