Maple Leafs issue last-minute announcement hinting at major firing

Published May 5, 2024 at 9:45 PM

After the elimination of the Toronto Maple Leafs by the Boston Bruins, all eyes are turned towards the upper management.

There will surely be one or more dismissals for the Leafs, and some names will suffer, but which one? (or which ones)

We will clearly have a verdict as soon as tomorrow, as the Toronto organization has just announced a last-minute press conference, and importantly, they just announced that head coach Sheldon Keefe will be there tomorrow to answer questions! A major development.

It is clear that he will not be dismissed in the short term, against all expectations, but Brendan Shanahan seems to be seriously in danger of losing his job.

Stay tuned!

Major press briefing tomorrow in Toronto and a dismissal would be announced

A big file for tomorrow!

«Sheldon Keefe and the players of the Maple Leafs will meet the press tomorrow. The team's upper management on Thursday.» - Renaud Lavoie

«The Leafs will hold an end-of-season availability tomorrow for players and head coach Sheldon Keefe will be present! The management will only speak on Thursday.

The team has not specified which member(s) of the management will then speak. Questions remain for the players and Sheldon Keefe tomorrow, but they all revolve in the same direction.» - Chris Johnston, TSN

«The Maple Leafs will hold their end-of-season media interviews on Monday, starting with coach Sheldon Keefe at 11:30 AM ET.

Management will address the media on Thursday.» - David Pagnotta

This is a significant departure from past protocols there.

Stay tuned, starting tomorrow!
