Tension growing between Leafs stars and Sheldon Keefe

It was clear that sheldon keefe was not happy with his teams performance the other night in a 4-2 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

After the game, he had some strong words for not only his team, but the underperforming stars on it.

“The difference between us and Arizona is that we have elite players,” he said in the wake of that loss. “And our elite players didn’t play like elite players.”

This caused some tension between Keefe and his players, mainly Mitch Marner who seems to have a hard time accepting criticism. Marner was asked about the quote last night before a Fortnite stream.

“I talked to him today — he explained what he meant to say and how it came out and everything like that. I’ll leave it at that. We have closed doors for a reason”

Go back 10 years and you would never see a player publicly speaking out against their coach’s comments, or if you did you wouldn’t see them on the ice the next day.

It’s growing clear that the Leafs stars run the dressing room, and Keefe is quickly losing the ear of his player.

If you don’t have that little bit of fear, or even respect for your coach, to not come out and publicly put him on blast for criticizing your play. Well, thats not a sign of a healthy team.
