TORONTO - Maple Leafs centre Dave Bolland was providing an update on his status — marking the first such occasion in quite some time for the injured player — when a reporter asked about his impression of his team's play during his time on the injured reserve list.

"The team? I thought this was about me. I thought you guys were asking questions about me. I thought you just wanted to hear about me," the Mimico native said from inside the team's dressing room on Saturday morning.

Good to know Bolland hasn't lost his dry wit. After all, a sense of humour is probably some key medicine during his slow-moving recovery from an injury to his left ankle. Signed in the off-season, the former Blackhawk was flying out of the gate with six goals and 10 points through 18 games.
