According to Sportsnet, the Leafs have offered the position of Sr. Vice President and director of Hockey Operations to the Ducks' Dave Nonis.
An extremely poorly kept secret has been made all but official
Could this end the tamper talk? And what does this mean for the Leafs? Well, if Burke was Plan A and Plan B was wait then the Leafs could be back to the drawing board.
However, two thoughts:
1 - Nonis will apparently have an out clause in his contract
2 - Burke could be getting his replacement in place
Which angle will the media report? I am going with the replacement theory.
