“The Speed Line”
Happy 28th birthday Mason! (x)
Obviously a lot of fond memories here- I started my career here, and very appreciative of all the things that have happened here…good friends and everything, but it’s time to flip the page, and I’m wearing a different jersey now- very happy to be a Toronto Maple Leaf, and looking forward to getting on the ice and just going out to play the game.
Is there any extra motivation considering obviously this is an organization that…they didn’t bring you back? Yeah, I mean, obviously, of course, right? I think that goes without saying, yeah, you wanna go and play well in every game, but especially against your former team and your teammates, and more importantly, prove some stuff to myself.
An extension for the Sedins today- your reaction to that? Yeah, I mean…can’t say enough good things about those guys- first-class guys all around, well-deserving of that. They’ve been with this organization a long, long, time, and more likely finish their careers here, so, very happy for the two of them, and glad they got it all done.
You and Bolland ever go over old war stories at all- have you talked about that? We’ve conversed about it for sure- I’d rather not talk about it since they more often than not had the upper hand on us, so…
I learned a lot here in Vancouver, for sure. Had some experience here…we had a good cup run, and you learn from some good guys that were in Vancouver, but everyone’s been so good in Toronto- helping me adjust family-wise, hockey-wise, off the ice…so, it’s continuing…it’s a process, obviously, and I’m enjoying every minute of it.
