The Toronto Maple Leafs have rescheduled their upper management season-ending press conference to Friday, and it's got everyone buzzing. Brad Treliving, Brendan Shanahan, and Keith Pelly are all set to show up and face the media.

The #leafs have moved Thursday's scheduled end-of-season management media availability to Friday and will have Keith Pelley, Brendan Shanahan and Brad Treliving in attendance.
Initially, it was supposed to go down on Thursday, but now they've pushed it back a day. This has invited Speculation City! Fans are already dissecting every possible offseason move the Leafs might make, which will feed into that department.
What people are talking about is Brendan Shanahan's involvement. The present hardly ever steps out in front of the cameras, so his presence is riveting. The last time we saw him was during last offseason's management shake-up when Brad Treliving was appointed the GM. Seeing him again adds a whole new layer of intrigue to the event.
Shanahan rarely speaks, the CEO has not made a Leaf related media event since the Tim Leiweke era.
And speaking of intrigue, there's plenty to go around. With the team's direction up in the air, everyone's waiting for concrete news. Yes, they've committed to Auston Matthews and William Nylander. Still, changes might be on the horizon, especially after head coach Sheldon Keefe, who may be shown the door, shouldered some blame for the season's disappointments.
Toronto @MapleLeafs Head Coach Sheldon Keefe says he takes responsibility for the team not meeting expectations this season.
The entire Leafs offseason is shaping to be a rollercoaster of anticipation and wild guesses. The ride begins Friday.
