Furthermore, it appears that Dubas might be looking to bring someone from Toronto to join him in Pittsburgh. According to Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman, there are indications that Jason Spezza, the former assistant GM of the Leafs, could potentially be the individual Dubas selects as the new General Manager of the Penguins in the upcoming season.

However, the exact position within the organization that Spezza will take on is yet to be confirmed. Elliotte Friedman mentioned on the Jeff Marek show that he believes Spezza is joining the organization in some capacity, but whether it will be with the Penguins or Fenway Sports Group remains uncertain.
