Brad Marchand gives the Toronto Maple Leafs some praise in a surprising comment

One of the best rivalries in the league is a showdown between two original
six teams; The Boston Bruins vs the Toronto Maple Leafs.

These two teams always have entertaining matchups with highly skilled players. Lets also not forget the playoff history between them, when Toronto blew a 3-1 lead and lost the series in 7 games.

Brad Marchand grew up a Maple Leafs supporter and is now a modern-day Bruins legend who will probably see his number retired in the rafters some day.

Now, before a game against the Leafs, he made some unexpected remarks regarding the Maple Leafs, his childhood team.

Brad Marchand on the Leafs this morning: "It's a matter of time until they make a really good push and go deep. They're just too talented.

He continued to praise the teams adaptability:

You have to respect it, but they have definitely gotten better over the last number of years. They brought some D in that are much more defensively responsible, harder to play against, a little more physical and a little bigger. They are definitely improving, they are legit contenders this year.

For the Leafs to win the cup they have to get past these almighty Bruins, who are the hottest team in the league and there's no signs of slowing them down.
