The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired defenseman Jake Muzzin from the Los Angeles Kings at the end of January last season. It was the Leafs' big acquisition and Muzzin got to enjoy the excitement of a playoff push in Toronto. While the Leafs were once again bounced from the playoffs during the first round, the disappointment by fans was nothing compared to what's going on in the city right now after not even a full month of action. It's Muzzin's first taste of media and fan backlash."Every team goes through it. We're having some talks, but let's not go frickin' crazy here".
Muzzin believes everything will be ok, and the team just has to connect after a lot of offseason changes. "Maybe sometimes it takes a little longer than everyone's expecting it to; like just, boom, it happens. When you have new faces, playing new systems, sometimes there's miscues and stuff so we're working it out, we'll be alright."
