Bullish Burke wants bruising Buds to work hard - Toronto Sun

Quote:
  • Training camp doesn't begin until Sept. 12, but Brian Burke already has thrown down the gauntlet.
  • "One of the biggest problems last year was the sense of entitlement here," the Leafs GM said yesterday as he introduced new Toronto Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins.
  • "I want every player under contract to realize that I will not hesitate to send a player on a one-way (contract) to the minors if he's not prepared (to play hard)."
  • "I'd like to see a little bit Darwinian theory at work at training camp and see who wants to play here," Burke said. "If something materializes that made sense, we'd look at it."
  • Burke said he is "excited" to see what Kaberle can do with some of the veteran defencemen he acquired, particularly Mike Komisarek and Francois Beauchemin.
  • "Say your first (defensive unit) is Kaberle and Komisarek," Burke said. "Kaberle is not picking his teeth out of the glass all night (anymore). I'm excited about that.
  • "There's some notion that everyone has to be tough on a hockey team. They don't. You have to surround your skill guys with enough size and toughness that they can play their game. And I think that's what we've done."
  • "I believe that toughness and fear are contagious," the GM said. "And I count on improved performance from some of those kids just because we're bigger and meaner."

Sure sounds more and more that Kaberle will be staying.

Excellent quote from Burkey:

I'm so excited to see Beauchemin's first bone crushing hit this year, and then many more to come

I really hope we won't see another scene where a goon like Cam Janssen knocks Kaberle teeth into the boards and no one on our team steps up to whoop his ass. If that happens again with this team i would be so pissed.

Schenn doesn't play the left, Beachemin doesn't play the right. SWITCH!

I'm excited to see Kaberle be able to loosen up this season knowing he has the protection with Komisarek, Beauchemin and Schenn this season.
