Few fans were surprised when Sheldon Keefe was fired from his head coaching position with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Now, after being hired by the New Jersey Devils, he took today's press conference as an opportunity to destroy the team.

When the Toronto Maple Leafs lost in another game seven against the Boston Bruins during the first round of this year's Stanley Cup playoffs, it was only a matter of time before head coach Sheldon Keefe would end his five-year tenure with the team. They made the announcement official only a few weeks ago that Keefe was officially dropped by the team.
"The Maple Leafs have fired Sheldon Keefe."

Luckily for the recently fired coach, Keefe had to wait only a short time before his next job offer came in. It was less than two weeks later that he would be hired as the new head coach of the New Jersey Devils.
"BREAKING: Sheldon Keefe has been hired as the next coach of New Jersey Devils.


While he acknowledged the honor he felt coaching the Toronto Maple Leafs for as long as he did, it was clear that he still felt burned by the team that fired him. Earlier today, Keefe destroyed the team with a brutal statement, sharing the idea that coaching for the Devils is a clear step up.
"I've had a number of well-established coaches reach out to say that I should be happy now that I get to coach in the real NHL."

With a new future already set up for him and the Toronto Maple Leafs struggling to figure out their moves for next season, it appears Keefe will have the last laugh. Hopefully, he can make a greater impact on the New Jersey Devils than in his previous position. If not, it could be another five years without anything to show for it.
