Player Responsibility and the Media

Saturday night after the Toronto Maple Leafs were beaten 6-2 by the Buffalo Sabresm Phil Kessel told the media "get away from me." This has sparked a conversation about fans, player responsibility and the media. @HappyCaraT people are just doing their jobs. A beat guy needs a Kessel quote after a 6-2 loss to the leagues worst team.— Thomas Drance (@ThomasDrance) November 17, 2014 What responsibility does a player have to the media?

Bruins terrible in Toronto
