On John Ferguson Jr.

Just turned on Hockey Night in Canada. The Leafs are playing the Senators tonight.

Before the game, Ron McLean was chatting up in the rafters with John Muckler, the Senators GM and John Ferguson, the Leafs' counterpart.

This is the first time I've seen Ferguson speaking sort of naturally.

He's always been terse and taciturn, he's always avoided speaking publicly. Now I know why. He's genuinely not comfortable speaking in public. It really shows.

I guess there's an edict or something from the league on being more available to the public. Gotta win back the public and the media after last year's blight.
