TORONTO – Two times in the past three seasons, the hockey team from Toronto has collapsed under city-rattling circumstances, including a rapid descent from near-certain playoff entry last season. In between was a valiant stab at the first Leaf post-season series win in years from a feisty, competitive group – albeit, one that probably benefited from the 48-game schedule. Looking to recapture some of that magic, Leafs management made character, attitude, leadership and qualities of mental fortitude high priorities in their bid at roster reconstruction on July 1st. Led by president Brendan Shanahan and incumbent general manager Dave Nonis, the club reacquired two players from that 2013 squad – Leo Komarov and Matt Frattin – also adding 37-year-old Stephane Robidas to a defence that recently replaced the steady Carl Gunnarsson with edgy-type Roman Polak. “Part of it is always about character,” said Nonis, shortly after 5pm et, when the Leafs first crack at free agency ended. “I dont think that we have a character issue with our team or our players, but I think adding people like Leo and Robidas to [the roster] only strengthens it. The compete level that we had two years ago, I think was at or near the top of the league. We got more out of our players – the coaches did – the players, themselves, did in terms of pushing each other, than we did last year. No question about it.” Randy Carlyle couldnt summon much in the way of explanation as to why things unraveled for the Leafs so epically months earlier, but did notice something amiss with the attitude of his group. “We lacked the compete,” he said, while at the draft in Philadelphia this past weekend. “I look at compete as part of the character flaw.” It was clear management sensed something similar, though character and leadership would hardly encompass the Leafs woeful defence and penalty-killing, targeting players in free agency or on the trade market who were known for their high compete level. In addition to Komarov and Robidas, the club also made pitches to keep gritty, but soon-to-be overpaid, Dave Bolland, 38-year-old former Team Canada defender Dan Boyle and long-time Montreal heart-and-soul type, Josh Gorges. Robidas, who was signed for three years at $9 million, offers the Leafs a much-needed veteran upgrade in their top-four, a long-time Dallas Star whos physical, blocks shots and has the ability to play in every situation. A right-handed defender, in short supply for the club a year ago, and veteran of 885 regular season games, Robidas brings a savvy that was lacking on a mismatched back-end last season. “It was a factor,” Nonis said of character when it came to Robidas, who suffered two separate, broken right-leg injuries last season, but will be ready for training camp. “The people that I know that know him, that Brendan knows, speak very highly of the way he handles himself, on and off the ice. I dont think were looking at a guy thats going to come in here and be terribly vocal or anything like that, but in terms of playing the game the right way, taking care of yourself and leading by example, that coupled with being a right-shot and his playing ability, he was the guy we targeted right away.” Komarov bolted for the KHL after that 2013 campaign, but was eager to return to the NHL-lifestyle this fall. He garnered considerably more than the club appeared willing to pay just one year earlier, four years at $2.95 million per season, and quite a bit for a player who was limited offensively as a Leaf. It was clear, however, that Nonis and company valued the Finnish wingers scrappy play and were also hopeful of more upside with more opportunity next season. “Hes a very competitive guy,” said Nonis of Komarov, who had nine points in 42 games with the Leafs. “Hes going to give you whatever he has … He has compete. He gets under peoples skin by the way he plays, not because hes a chirper or anything like that, but he finishes every single check and, sometimes, I think people dont really enjoy the way he does that. But for us, he brought that element; he brought some character to our group. He was very well-liked by his teammates. All the things that you look for in a player, he ticks a lot of boxes.” Polak, too, was added from St. Louis earlier with an eye toward the “edge” he would bring to the Toronto defence, a quality infinitely enduring to the head coach. But for the all the focus on injecting the Leafs dressing room with more bite, increased leadership and character, its Carlyle and the still-yet-to-be-named coaching staff that bear the most watching next season. For whatever the Leafs lacked in determination and persistence last year – and there was a noticeable difference – it was their inability to defend with any degree of success that instigated their downfall last season. No team, as widely known by this point, allowed more shots than Toronto and only three teams allowed more power-play goals. It was a house of cards that was bound to collapse and did when Jonathan Bernier went down with injury in mid-March. And for all his drum-beating about the troubles, and he was quick to point flaws as early as October, Carlyle and his since-deposed trio of assistants could not find the right answers, instill a defensive mindset onto a sometimes immature roster, employ top line-ups and align the talent in place with a suitable style of play. All that will have to change and its up to Carlyle to adjust accordingly. The coming season wont be about leadership concerns or questions of character, but whether a head coach can adapt to a younger and faster league. Robidas, Polak and Komarov should help to address some of the defensive deficiencies of last year – also fitting Carlyles harder brand of hockey – particularly a penalty kill that fell right back to the bottom of the league last season. Roster holes still to be filled include a centre capable of playing in a third or fourth-line capacity – Peter Holland is in line for regular opportunity, but a security blanket for Carlyle is likely preferred – perhaps another defenceman, with Cody Franson likely on the way out, some scoring depth and a backup goaltender, though, Nonis continues to insist that James Reimer could be back next year, despite clear indications of his desire to move elsewhere. Some of those changes could come internally with a round of Marlies keen to take the next step into the NHL. The Leafs additionally have about $15 million in cap space to work with a group of restricted free agents, Jake Gardiner most prominently among them, still to sign. Ray Allen Jersey . But its also a smart game. Theres more to the Kings than banging bodies. They take a toll mentally on their opponents. Gary Payton Jersey .The seventh-seeded Raonic was scheduled to play U.S. Open finalist Kei Nishikori of Japan, but was replaced in the Group B pool by Spanish substitute David Ferrer.Raonic, who was 0-2 at the year-end event, said he suffered the injury late in the first set of Tuesdays 6-3, 7-6 loss to Murray. Five straight losses (and six in the past seven) now dot the schedule – matching their longest skid of the year – after they fell again in New Jersey on Sunday night, topped 3-2 by Cory Schneider and the Devils. Steven Adams Jersey .com) - Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer were among the third-round winners Friday at the French Open. Doug McDermott Jersey .com) - Chris Kreider tallied a goal and an assist as the New York Rangers capped a successful California road trip with a 3-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks know the one game on, one game off approach isnt going to get them very far.Following a hard-fought 3-1 road win over the San Jose Sharks, the Canucks were badly outplayed in a 3-2 loss to Los Angeles Kings on Thursday, blowing a 2-0 lead in the second period while getting outshot 40-16 on home ice. Add a 2-1 overtime defeat to the Anaheim Ducks prior to the San Jose outing where Vancouver salvaged a point despite being outshot 31-14 and the Canucks know they need to string together some better efforts.Its just consistency. Its not the way we play, its a mental thing, Canucks defenceman Luca Sbisa said after Fridays practice at Rogers Arena. Especially after big wins, Im not saying we were too loose (last) night, but sometimes those wins drain you physically and mentally.Youve got to get that consistency down because otherwise in the playoffs youre not going to do too much damage if youre good one night, bad the other night.The Canucks seem to have plugged a leak in their defensive scheme that allowed the New York Rangers to run wild on odd-man rushes in an embarrassing 5-1 loss on Dec. 13, but they know playing on the front foot will also be important in the second half of the season.I think we fall into our system a little bit too much maybe instead of being aggressive and getting on our forecheck. I think thats something that happened against Anaheim as well, said Canucks captain Henrik Sedin. It doesnt matter who you play against. Its all in our heads. We showed against San Jose we can play that way. We just need to be consistent.Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins was forced to pull on the reins after the debacle against the Rangers and said that has cost his team chances at the other end of the ice.If you look at our last games, its not just about scoring, its what youre giving up. We have sacrificed maybe a little bit of what were getting for what were giving up, said the coach. The last few games we havent given up as many really great chances.You cant go out at all costs and see what you can get. We tried that against the Rangers and that didnt work great. You have to try and get a balance in between.The Canucks (21-12-3) sit third in the Pacific Division heading into the weekend and know they will need to be better than they were against Los Angeles when they welcome the Detroit Red Wings (20-9-9) at home on Saturday night.We played well in San Jose against one of the best teams and (Desjardins) told us: If you can do it once theres no reason you cant do it every time, said Sbisa. Weve got to try and be a little more consistent. I think were a little too paassive once we take a lead.dddddddddddd.Thats not how you win games. Thats not a winning mentality.While the Canucks went with the same lineup against Los Angeles as the one that downed San Jose, Vancouver could have forward Zack Kassian back in the fold versus Detroit.The bruising winger has been out with a broken finger since late November, but was a healthy scratch against the Kings — something that didnt sit well with the player.The team was playing well. The team played good in San Jose. Fair enough, said the mercurial Kassian, who has two goals on the season and gave a number of short answers to questions on Friday. Now its my job to go in there an play well.Canucks general manager Jim Benning gave an impromptu scrum with the media inside the locker-room following practice — just a few feet from Kassians stall after most of the players had left — and said despite the struggles he still believes the 23-year-old has what it takes to be successful.But like the current roster as a whole, consistency is key.Zack has got the physical skillset to be a physical player for us, said Benning. Hes got good hands for a big man, but he needs to get to that point where on a night to night basis hes going to be consistently physical and use his frame to take pucks to the net, stand in front of the net, to get rebounds, to get tip ins.Thats the power forward style game. Thats the type of game he needs to play for us to stay in the lineup and for us to be successful.Kassian had 14 goals and 15 assists in 73 games last season, but a lot of those points came at the end of the lost campaign, something that Benning didnt put much stock into on Friday.Sometimes when a teams not playing well and you get those goals or points at the end of the year when the games are meaningless, it doesnt really mean much I dont think, he said. Hes got the physicality and the size to be a power forward for us and hes going to have to embrace that style of game and thats how hes going to help us win.Added Desjardins: I think the jurys out (on Kassian). The jurys out when you have a little bit of inconsistent play. Theres been times when hes been good. I think thats something that occurs over time. Its the same with the team. Wheres the jury on the team? Well it occurs over time doing the right thing all the time.Note: The Canucks placed forward Tom Sestito on waivers Friday in hopes of sending him to the American Hockey Leagues Utica Comets. The Vancouver tough guy had one assist and seven penalty minutes in three games this season while mostly watching from the press box as a scratch.--Follow @JClipperton_CP on Twitter Cheap Chargers Jerseys Cheap Rams Jersey Cheap Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Vikings Jerseys Cheap Patriots Jersey Cheap Saints Jerseys Cheap New York Giants Jerseys Cheap Jets Jerseys Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap 49ers Jerseys Cheap Seahawks Jerseys Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys Cheap Titans Jerseys Cheap Redskins Jerseys ' ' '
