@mcloki @Jmessih It's easy when you're the top guy and the people you're hiring are no threat to you or your position.

@Alec Brownscombe I don't see it as much for Nonis, I think Shanny likes how the front office is shaping up and the hiring of Dubas probably bought Nonis some time.

@loomx @Greg Fenton @DJBrianBurke Basically he would have to go down for a long period of time or be traded and Reimer would have to be brutal. I just think there are teams that are going to be just awful from beginning to end and it will be too hard for the Leafs to drop that far. Of course I have seen a couple of rigs going off the cliff before ;)

@Greg Fenton @DJBrianBurke For sure, of course who doesn't want to get Stammer without giving up any assets just money. I'm not going to hold my breath, a lot can happen in two years.

@Greg Fenton @DJBrianBurke This team seems to always start strong. If McDavid was the goal, they should have stripped the team already.

@Greg Fenton Leafs will not be bad enough to draft McDavid. That's pie in the sky. I just don't see it.

Nice article Michael. The "old boys club" definitely took a hit today.

It's going to be interesting in seeing someone as young as Kyle develop and being groomed in the next few years. Shanny seems (obviously) excited by this hire and what Kyle can bring to the table. Just like Nylander, Reilly etc. are the future on the ice, Dubas seems the heir apparent in the front office.

Besides Shanahan's endorsement, I can't help but feel a tad excited and hopeful. As a hiring is not the norm for the Leafs or most teams for that matter (Stellick doesn't count). Good on Shanahan and MLSE, for looking outside for talent and not limiting their search. For grabbing a person they feel is a bright, knowledgable yet still hungry to learn more (only mentioned it about six times in the interview), before anyone else. It gives a sense of a long term plan.

At the very least the embattled and staunch Corsi supporters should calm down, they may even buy a jersey with his name on it ;)

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @DJBrianBurke I can't really say, I haven't heard his stuff since his first album or two. I think he does some gospel now, which isn't my cup of tea. Don't quote me on that*.

Could try last.fm to try him out: http://www.last.fm/music/Jonny+Lang


*he might have just released some gospel stuff on the side. I remember him as a blues player/singer.
