from Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star,
Fans are captivated by the thing that makes Tucker tick, granting him latitude, more forgiveness than most athletes get, and an unabashed fidelity. “I don’t think it’s necessarily a love affair. But fans can see how much I want to win, for myself and for the city. I’ll do anything to win a hockey game.
“A lot of this city is blue collar. Guys get up in the morning, have their Tim Hortons, go to work. They understand that I have the same blue-collar attitude towards my job. Maybe I didn’t grow up in Toronto watching the Leafs. But I grew up on a farm in Alberta. When I wasn’t playing hockey I was working my tail off like the rest of the world.”
