Toskala Ready And Willing To Play

from Curtis Zupke of the OC Register,

It looked awkward to see Vesa Toskala in his Toronto Maple Leafs goalie mask juxtaposed against his Ducks practice jersey when he took the ice Sunday.

Toskala had been idled for six days waiting for a work visa to join the team, but he still had his old mask.

He was eager to shed it for a new one.

“Hopefully soon,” Toskala said. “So I can wash that blue and white out of my gear.”

“I don’t think I’m a backup goalie,” he said. “I obviously want to play a lot, and I know how good I can play. But like I said earlier, there are lots of things you can’t control in this league. I just do whatever I have to do here to help the team make the playoffs.

“I’m not going to complain or anything. If it’s my call, I would play every game because I love to play. When I play a lot, I play my best.”
