The Maple Leafs have been searching for a new general manager lately. Brendan Shanahan and the rest of the Leafs' front office have been working hard to find a replacement for Kyle Dubas. They have considered several candidates, but it seems like they might be focusing on one candidate in particular.

Brad Treliving, who was the GM of the Calgary Flames, is a top contender for the Leafs' GM position. Despite his recent departure from the Flames, Treliving has been actively looking for a new job and his name has been mentioned frequently in relation to the Toronto GM role. According to a new report, he could be the favorite candidate.

Treliving's experience in an NHL front office and his long tenure in the league make him a suitable choice for Toronto. He is known for not shying away from making significant trades and could effectively handle important contracts like those of Matthews and Marner.


There's Still Other Contestants in the Running



Although Treliving appears to be the leading candidate, Shanahan has also interviewed other GMs for the position. Former GMs such as Marc Bergevin (former Canadiens GM) and Peter Chiarelli (former Edmonton GM) have reportedly been considered for the role. So, it's too early to rule out anyone else.

Each candidate brings a wealth of experience to the table, ensuring that Toronto will have an experienced veteran as their new GM.

We don't know when an official announcement will be made, but we will provide the latest updates as soon as they are available.
