No proclamations, no bluster, no loose-hanging tie.

Just a calm David Nonis discussing the Maple Leafs and their first-round series against the Boston Bruins. Nonis doesn’t exactly bring to mind his predecessor, Brian Burke, but that’s kind of the point.

“Based on experience that they are not too far removed from a Stanley Cup, they finished ahead of us and all of those things, I think you would have to say that makes us the underdog,” Nonis said on Monday.
