[REPORT] Manny Malhotra to Toronto in Canucks Talk Posted September 17 1 minute ago, coolboarder said: Our faceoff will suffer without Manny teaching the players about art of the faceoff and other aspect of the game. Leafs will benefit greatly from this hire. I never liked Brown so hopefully that we would be able to find a better assistant coach out there. All the best, Manny. I don't think it will have immediate effect. He has taught the young guys well over the last 3-4 years. It will stay with these guys for the rest of their careers. Petey and Bo have already received the foundation and some fine tuning to the art of faceoffs and the more subtle nuances of the game from him. If anything, I worry about the next wave of players like Podkolzin and Höglander etc... Regardless, with a year left on his contract, and Green not standing in his way (classy move) will pay dividends over the long haul for this franchise... Just like Mannys influence on our core players. But there is no doubt, we are weaker as an organization today compared to yesterday. Good luck Manny, well deserved. We'll miss you.
