Tyler Bozak of the Toronto Maple Leafs has loyalties to the leaf on his jersey. He concerns himself with the success of the team rather than playing the game strictly for financial gain. At the end of this season Tyler will become an unrestricted free agent.
However rather than talk to the media about the salary he could make outside of Toronto, he chooses place his focus on playing well for his current club. It’s no secret that the Leafs youth have made positive strides in creating a winning atmosphere, and maybe number 42 will want to stick around a few more seasons with the Maple Leafs to see what the team can achieve.
Some of hockey’s youth have taken the big deal. Some players were recently signed to very lucrative deals include Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Alexander Semin. Bozak was quoted in the Toronto Sun saying “That stuff will work itself out when the time is right. Currently I’m just trying to the best I can in helping my team make the playoffs.”
As it stands, The Leafs are one of the youngest squads in all of the NHL. No current player on the squad is over 30 years old.
Maybe there is something to say for the youth of hockey in Toronto after all. There is no mistake the current group of young guns have made each game they play competitive and most of all exciting for the fans to watch. It has suddenly become cool to be a Leafs fan once again.
