Former Cat Mike Van Ryn appears to be adjusting well to his new digs in Toronto, according to a story in the Globe and Mail:
"I'm not afraid to stand up for myself (in dealing with New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello during a contract dispute). I'm actually happy the way it turned out."
Genuinely good to see the guy is, not surprisingly, adapting to his surroundings well. Never a word of criticism will come from the mouths of Panther fans about MVR. Though health concerns will always dog him, the Leafs have picked up a great character and team player.
