Acknowledging the struggles he had in Anaheim following the return of the seven players the Ducks sent to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Randy Carlyle said it will be a challenge for the Leafs to get Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk geared back up for the team's stretch run. “When you don't have the success that you're expecting to have there is going to be some sort of a letdown, but that's our job as an organization and coaching staff to rebuild these guys back up,” Carlyle said on TSN Drive Tuesday night.
