One was age 34 and a bit folically challenged, the other wide-eyed and barely out of his teens.
But Jason Allison and Robert Slaney were both counting their blessings on the first day of Maple Leafs' training camp and intent on showing they can score.
This is what I love about training camp, especially this year's camp. Players all have a chance to show what they've got, and it's now time to polish potential diamonds in the rough. Players in such a situation have an even greater opportunity this year, with Burke saying no job is safe.
I like how this article shines some light on Slaney also.
