Tim Gleason’s first media scrum as a Leaf


New Leaf Tim Gleason speaks with the media after his first practice on Friday.

Alec Brownscombe is the founder of MapleLeafsHotStove.com, where he has written daily about the Leafs since September of 2008. He was also the editor of the 2009-12 Maple Leafs Annuals. Contact him at [email protected]

You can tell the guy's nervous in front of all those cameras.  When asked if he knows anybody on the team, he mentions Kuli and playing against a few others...nevermind that he played with Kessel (and JVR?) in the 2010 Olympics lol.

Good first impression.

Fraser did a good job for us last year for the most part.  with his apparent decline, perhaps Timmy F'n (oh wait...he'll have to earn that) Gleason will re-fill that need.  perhaps Franson's a natural first try for a partner?

God forbid we ever get Fraser, Ranger and Gleason all playing well and in the lineup together.
