from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
Nik Antropov wants to stress that he is not slagging the Maple Leafs.
At the same time, the veteran forward admits noticing a difference between his former team and the New York Rangers, the squad he was shipped to at the trade deadline two weeks ago.
“The whole team is really close here,” Antropov said in a phone interview. “That’s something we never really had in Toronto the past few years.
“One of the reasons is all the new faces we had with the Leafs in the last two or three years. And then there were different coaches, different systems. That all plays a part in it.
“It’s not a shot at Toronto. I loved my time there. But I did notice the difference when I got here.”
