Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keef said Thursday, “I wouldn’t say it’s a concern, given that it has nothing to do with being front-line with regards to his oversight.” It was just a little bit that made me feel uncomfortable and in the end I decided it was a good time to give him some extra time as today is one of the most difficult days of the year. Look at him in a week and see how things settle down.”

Last year was a long few months to end the year. I can feel a little more.” I’m so happy.” There’s still a long way to go, but the light is at the end of the tunnel.”
