I still think Wiki will use his influence or connections when needed.  I also think Nonis should be the one wheeling and dealing with other GM's talking trade.  Shanny will over see Nonis and bring it to Wiki for approval.

Oh, I quite agree.  Just connecting the dots though (and thinking out loud).

It's going to be fun watching the Canucks sink like a stone.   This year aside, I still think the Leafs are on the rise.  Seeing us passing Vancouver as they fall will be awesome.  Gonna pull up a lawn chair and watch it all unfold.

Vancouver is a shadow of their former selves without Lou.....period.  Also, I doubt Gillis (or Feaster) get another GM gig in the bigs.  In saying that, I supposed they will show up on some TV or radio panel at some point next season.

Could very well be the case, dude.  Like I said to Ingy....just spitballing here...connecting the dots so to speak.  Thing is though, the number of teams looking for a new coach could out number the amount of (good) coaches at some point.  My guess is that the Leafs already have their man in some which way or fashion.

My guess is Wiki lined this up around the same time as Shanny was being asked into the fold.  So, to answer your question, it would appear Wiki could be picking the coach if this is indeed the case.  I'm just spitballing due to the delay in firing Carlyle and the connection of Wiki to LA and the fact that Stevens was a head coach at one time (to be honest, I know very little about him).  However, I will also say that if this is the case, I don't like the thought of Wiki doing the picking and choosing (would much prefer Nonis...or even Shanny to make such a call).

One would think, yeah.  All makes sense when you put it into perspective.  Not sure how I feel about Stevens to be honest.  He had highs and lows in Philly as official bench boss.

So, I've developed a theory that MLSE (Wiki) is waiting for LA to get bounced from the playoffs so that Stevens can officially be named head coach of the Leafs...thus delaying the Carlyle firing.  It's already a done deal....all hangs on how deep LA goes.

Yeah, see, I could get into that.  I remember the Globetrotters (they are still around actually, heard McCown interview a female member of the team last year....she was pretty cool).  I remember when they would play at the Gardens.  Gotta love Curley.

I've seen (been to) perhaps 2 basketball games in my life....back in the mid 90's.  Seen Magic play once.  I think it's cool that they are back in the playoffs, though I would never count myself as an actual fan.  Just kinda interested and hoping they go on a run.  Nice to have a winning culture back in Toronto.

Yushki was THE MAN!!  Loved that guy!!  Remember when he shadowed Jagr in the playoffs??  He would follow him around on the ice chirping him with every stride.  Closest we have to him now is Leo....and he's not even signed...yet.

The original actress who played Marcia has wanted nothing to do with the show since it initially aired.  Not sure what happened there (similar to Joanie on Happy Days).  As for Marcia, a different actress played her role in all the movies after the show ended.

Sure, but we already had plenty of offensive minded D in Gards and Rielly.  I think the thinking was that Brennan's defensive lapses would hurt us even more.  At least, that's the impression I got as the season wore on.

Yeah, I was a huuuuge supporter of Franson...wanted him signed long term last summer for coin.  Kept hoping he'd turn things around this season given a bigger role.  Saw flashes of last season's playoffs in him....but overall was very disappointed.  I don't see us going to arbys with him this summer (he will be dealt).

I've always been impressed with Davidson.  Loved him on the Hot Stove panel when he was out of management for awhile.  Wish he was a Leafer.

Detroit was primed and ready to pick Biggs immediately following us (they traded their 1st away immediately after we picked him).  Wasn't just us that were interested in Biggs.

I wasn't scared of facing any team in the East....'cept Columbus.  They owned us all season.  Did not want to meet them.  I said since before the dance started, I hope Columbus gets to the finals and takes home the Cup.  For a team that was the laughing stock of the league (aside from us) not even 2 years ago.....they've sure come a long way.  I hope they do well (would be nice to see them put Pitt out).

I don't appreciate the way Seabrook supposedly taunted Backes after the hit (wakey wakey).  That alone is worth a game (very poor sportsmanship).

First order of business (aside from resolving our coaching situation) should be signing Leo Komarov.  I expect Shanny to understand the importance of a player like Leo (and how we've missed his sandpaper this last season).

Granted, but it was an open hit from the front...not from behind.  He had his head down (which he should know better...especially in the playoffs).
