from Mark Masters of the National Post,
Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson was asked on Monday why, on occasion, he feels compelled to smash his stick on the net after allowing a goal.
“It’s always been part of my game,” said Gustavsson. “I think I do it less now than I did a couple years ago. Even my last year in Sweden I think I broke a couple sticks there, because I always want to compete, I always want to win and I don’t think it’s a frustrations [thing], I think it’s more that I compete.”
It was suggested to Gustavsson by a reporter that his net abuse may be setting a bad example for young players.
