Controversy Involving John Tavares Emerges and it Doesn't Look Good for the Maple Leafs

Despite a positive record of 12-6-4 for the Toronto Maple Leafs after 22 games, the same old issues seem to be plaguing the rivals of the Canadiens.

The team plays with a heavy focus on offense, often leaving their defensive responsibilities unchecked. Moreover, as has been the case several times in the past, the commitment of the team's leaders to engage in this aspect of the game is still lacking.

A controversy has erupted on social media featuring disheartening footage of the Maple Leafs' captain and key leader, John Tavares.

As the play moves into Toronto's zone following a turnover in the neutral zone, the camera captured Tavares showing a lack of defensive effort and involvement, which has been deemed absolutely unacceptable.


"The Maple Leafs really gave him the C? Great example to set for your teammates."

The footage is embarrassing for Tavares and serves as a perfect example that this franchise may not be ready to sacrifice or give 110% to win a championship.
