In a surprising turn of events, Elliotte Friedman, a highly reputable NHL insider, has unveiled important news about Sheldon Keefe, the current head coach of the Leafs.

The 32 Thoughts Podcast: A Source of Inside Information

Elliotte Friedman is widely recognized as one of the most reliable sources in the NHL realm. His knack for outpacing his peers by delivering news to the NHL community is remarkable.
On the "32 Thoughts" podcast, co-hosted by himself and Jeff Marek, Friedman divulged an impactful bit of news concerning Keefe's future with Toronto.
Friedman stated:
"I'm not convinced it's a guarantee that he's not coming back. I think there is a shot here, again, I don't want to put a percentage on it, but I think it's not insignificant. I think there is a decent chance the new GM keeps him."

Brad Treliving's Role in Shaping the Leafs' Future

Now that the Leafs have officially brought Brad Treliving on board, he may decide it's time for Keefe to step aside for a new face. Additionally, with the recent departure of assistant coach Spencer Carbery to the Washington Capitals, the Leafs are likely to bring on two coaches who can collaborate effectively.

Potential Candidates if Leafs Part Ways with Keefe

Several intriguing contenders are emerging for the potential coaching vacancies. However, Patrick Roy and Peter Laviolette stand out as likely targets if the Leafs decide to let Keefe go.
Should the Leafs make the decision to relieve Keefe of his duties, it would be prudent to act swiftly. Other teams, such as the New York Rangers and the Calgary Flames, are also on the hunt for a new head coach.
The Leafs will want to secure their top picks before their competitors make their moves.
