Xtra, the Canadian gay and lesbian wesbite, has a video with three members of the Toronto Maple Leafs discussing how they would deal with having a gay teammate. Luke Schenn, Mike Komisarek and John-Michael Liles don't have anything groundbreaking to say, but that they're discussing it at all is cool.

We have heard countless stories from journalists about pro athletes avoiding even discussing gay issues, so it's good to hear some voicing what basically amounts to a "who cares?" reaction (I mean that positively). Though it is odd to hear Komisarek refer to being gay as a "belief."
