"More than the (salary) numbers, I'm excited," Bradley said after practice. "Excited for the Leafs, excited for the city.
"I think it shows again how committed MLSE (Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment) is to everything they're doing. I don't pretend to be a hockey expert but I follow things and I know that Mike Babcock's reputation is second to none in terms of a coach, in terms of a man. ... I'm excited to watch."
Bradley's 2014 salary was listed at US$6.5 million by the MLS Players Union.
Asked if he planned to ask for a raise, Toronto coach Greg Vanney demurred.
"I've got to win a lot more games before that happens," he said dryly.
