Word Association: Maple Leafs vs Kings players

Doughty Drew Kings

It’s been quite a while since MayorsManor has done one of our popular Word Association segments, so with the Toronto Maple Leafs in town tonight seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Pre-game chats with Dustin Penner used to be the norm when he was in LA, but now that he’s in Anaheim his visits to MayorsManor have been a little less frequent – and that’s not necessarily a good thing. Always a great quote and one of the more honest players in the league when it […]
