During the course of an 82 game season tempers often flare. Usually that anger is taken out on a member of the opposing team. Every once and awhile however, that frustration results in some friendly fire. That's exactly one happened with Ryan Reaves when he let his temper get the best of him.

Over the years Reaves has learned to control his temper when necessary, but as he shared in a recent podcast appearance that wasn't always the case.
We come off from a shift, I think I turn it over and they had a couple of scoring chances and I sit down. So I'm all the way at the very end on the left side and Hitch is just f*cking screaming, "Reavo, you've gotta get the f*cking puck out."

I'm honest with myself, so I'll say, "yah, I know my bad, my bad."

Now I'm sitting again, "Reavo, f*ck me, you gotta get the f*ckin puck."

"Hitch, I know I heard you." Now he's right in front of me, "Reavo did you hear me?"

It's the only time I've really snapped. I turned around and I grabbed him by the tie. I was like, "if you don't shut your f*cking mouth, I'm going to strangle you with this f*cking tie."

Reavo eventually went into his coach's office and made amends for his over reaction. This level of accountability is what Reavo is going to bring to the Maple Leafs. Hopefully for Sheldon Keefe's sake he doesn't give a bit too much to Reaves.
