Apparently Paul Maurice has been fired as Head Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs. It would seem the powers-that-be in Leafland have overlooked the fact that Maurice had ZERO talent to work with! And, I thought the incoming General Manager was supposed to decide Maurice's fate?
I'm beginning to think that Cliff Fletcher - originally hired as a short-term GM after John Ferguson Jr. was fired - is going to stay on through next season. After that, Brian Burke's contract with Anaheim expires and the folks at MLSE will offer Burke whatever he wants to take over. Or not. Logic doesn't usually factor into too many decisions surrounding that hockey club.
