Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
Wilson likes his team and now has to find his footing. He’s on the clock. More than any one of his players, this is a season in which he has to demonstrate he can make a difference.
He knows it. It’s why you’re going to see the Leafs get down to under 30 players from 68 quickly, and why the final four exhibition games will feature more veterans than the first five.
Wilson has had five months to doodle lineups on his ever-present iPad — when he’s not using it to play tic-tac-toe with his grand-daughter — and imagine how to use the players he now has at his disposal.
It was his influence that led to Dion Phaneuf becoming captain. They don’t know each other perfectly yet, but Wilson likes Phaneuf’s positive exuberance and rapid-fire verbosity, an outgoing demeanor completely at odds with that which Phaneuf presents to the media and public.
