There seemed to be a general consensus that, if the Leafs missed the playoffs badly and did not play well this season, a change could be in the offing, especially given the new ownership group that has taken over the Leafs.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t much matter what media folks think or expect will or won’t happen. They’re not Leaf fans. I’m interested in hearing what you believe Leaf ownership should do, especially now that the current season is in peril.
Here’s a question: four years into this regime, with all the talk, all the sous-chefs that give us the most bloated NHL front-office imaginable—and given that we may not see any NHL hockey for a year or so—is this the time for ownership to make a move and bring in someone to take this team in a new and different direction?
Head on over to VLM and let Mike know what you think. Personally, if the entire season is canceled I'd expect MLSE to clean house the very next day giving new management as much time as possible to settle into things prior to the draft and free agency.
