“We’ve got to buy in more and we’ve got to stop finding excuses for ourselves,” Holland said following the team’s late-morning practice in Etobicoke. “We keep telling ourselves that we’re in games and we’re finding ways to lose. It’s about time we find ways to win.”
The latest loss came Tuesday at the Air Canada Centre, a 3-2 defeat to the Florida Panthers in the first game following the trade of Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli to Nashville. New Leaf Olli Jokinen talked post game about the negative vibe surrounding the team, a feeling that’s difficult for the players who have been around the team all year to shake.
“I’m frustrated,” Holland said. “It’s tough being a young guy in my position. I don’t want to step on anybody’s toes, but if I was a veteran guy, I think I may have spoken up a little bit more.
“Guys care, but the run we’re on. It’s enough.”
