Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
There is a theory going around that one of the reasons for Toskala’s poor start is he’s having trouble adjusting to Allaire’s different style.
Tuesday morning, Toskala disagreed with that hypothesis.
“Who’s saying that?” he asked.
I told him I’d read it in a couple of articles and heard it discussed on television.
“All the big things are pretty much the same,” he said. “Every coach is similar, there is nothing unusual. I feel good.”...
Anyway, I relayed this story to another goalie on Thursday, and he disagreed. He understands Toskala’s refusal to make excuses, but says there is a big difference between the two men’s preferences.
“Toskala is all about getting out and challenging [the shooters]”, he said. “Francois is adamant how he wants his goalies to play. He is all about being a blocker ... taking away the net, covering up all holes and limiting gaps.”
