KD: "We knew Tavares was the one when he stepped into the dressing room and immediately commandeered the stereo and cranked up his favourite pump up jam."

Reporter: "What did he play?"

KD: "Static."

Is it 19th or 25th? Does not compute.

19th Toronto Maple Leaf captain; 25th of the franchise.

"The second argument is that Tavares is a bore — as in not fun or interesting off the ice. This is a convincing argument for Tavares’ captaincy, not against it. This market is a zoo of white noise and manufactured controversy already. The captain of the team should give the media zero rope to hang him with. The fact that Tavares can take any question in stride, never flinch or break face, and answer questions — no matter how ridiculous — in calm, measured, diplomatic tones is a major asset for this role. He’s as polished as they come in this respect ... (he also started his media training a decade and a half ago, when he was the first-ever exceptional-status player in the OHL)."

Yes. If there's one thing I've been saying for years it's that NHL players are too loud and brimming with personality. Finally a boring guy gets a chance in this sport.

Dougie!

Quote
John, you are the first captain the Leafs have named in three years.

You’re a player who doesn’t show a lot of emotion. You keep it under control.

You’re older than the other stars on the team — and that experience matters. You’ve been through it already.

Don’t change a thing.

As a boy, I know this was something you dreamed of.

So wear it proudly, now. I promise you, it’s an honour you’ll never forget.
