TORONTO, On. — When the Toronto Maple Leafs decided to bring in Hall of Famer Brendan Shanahan as its new president of hockey operations, the one statement the three-time Stanley Cup champion made that stood out was his desire to “change the culture in Toronto”, and with the hiring announcement of 28-year-old advanced stats specialist Kyle Dubas on Tuesday, the culture change is now officially underway. The Maple Leafs announced Tuesday that they have parted ways with VP of hockey operations Dave Pulin as well as VP and assistant general manager Claude Loiselle, paving the way for Dubas to take over as assistant GM. “He’s not tied to any old ideas,” Shanahan told Sportsnet in reg

In somewhat of a shocking development, Claude Loiselle and Dave Poulin have been fired as assistant GMs. Incoming is a 28 year old executive, Kyle Dubas, formerly General Manager of the Soo Greyhounds and a big proponent of advanced statistics. Poulin and Loiselle out as assistant GMs of Leafs. Kyle Dubas in as new assistant GM. This is Shanahan making first front office change. — steve simmons (@simmonssteve) July 22, 2014 The Maple Leafs have

The Toronto Maple Leafs are about done with their roster, but their front office is a different story altogether. The team surprised many today when it announced via its website that the Leafs have hired 28-year old Kyle Dubas as their Assistant General Manager. “Kyle is a young executive that has made a strong name […] Toronto Maple Leafs hire Dubas as Asst.

As the great Steve Dangle noted Cody Franson was one of only 42 defensemen who had at least 33 points last season, that appeared to be as good a reason as any for the Toronto Maple Leafs to re-sign him, avoding arbitration. @SportChek Player Alert: #Leafs Agree To Terms With Cody Franson http://t.co/uKbixyz72s #TMLtalk pic.twitter.com/ZUkAEwRhmN— Toronto Maple Leafs (@MapleLeafs) July 21, 2014#481353401 / gettyimages.comOne year at $3.3M, not bad for a player who averaged 20:42 of ice time and set career highs in assists (28) and points (33), and is right handed. This contract also marks his Cody Franson's third consecutive one-year pact. His salary has risen from $1.2 million two season

I was wondering when the first NHL team would jump on Kyle Dubas, the young Ontario Hockey League general manager who has turned around the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds program since his arrival. The Greyhounds have redefined the way they look for talent through the draft and how they break down player performance.I did not think it would ever be the Toronto Maple Leafs, but this is apparently that new world.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have hardly done anything in 2014 to alter their roster, especially when compared to last year’s run at David Clarkson and others in free agency. That’s just fine with General Manager Dave Nonis, who made it clear in a recent interview that standing pat was all part of the plan for […] Toronto Maple Leafs to stand pat on 2014 roster - FanSided - FanSided - Sports News, Entertainment, Lifestyle & Technology - 280+ Sites

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today the hiring of Kyle Dubas, who served the past three seasons as General Manager of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, as Assistant General Manager to David Nonis. As part of a front office restructuring, the club also announced the departures of Vice President of Hockey Operations Dave Poulin and Vice President and Assistant General Manager Claude Loiselle. “Kyle is a young executive that has made a strong name for himself in hockey with a progressive style, work ethic and maturation beyond his years,” said Toronto Maple Leafs President Brendan Shanahan. “He has a fresh approach that we feel will benefit our club for years to come.” “At the s

The Leafs canned two guys who know less than nothing about the NHL in 2014 and hired literally one of the best options that possibly exists. Shanahan and Dubas meeting with media at 1 p.m. Poulin / Loiselle apparently had no idea this was coming. Poulin was on radio this morning. — James Mirtle (@mirtle) July 22, 2014 We'll talk more about Kyle Dubas in the doldrums of the offseason here, but this is for real. The Leafs fired cap idiot Claude Loiselle and dipshit "sign Lebda" holdover Dave Poulin and replaced them with a 28 year old analytics guy in Kyle Dubas. I'm so happy right now I think I died and this is heaven. I have so many questions I don't even know where to start
