Not a huge surprise but a nice bit of news regardless.

Honestly the waiting was making me sweat a little so I'm glad this is finally official.

The big question now is what does Hunter do... and the answer is I don't care.

Yup, I would not be surprised if the NHL asked them to hold off until after the 2nd round.

A nice part of this is that it'll suck all the air out of the room in terms of the Jets making the conference finals, their fans will be furious that all the coverage will be about Toronto now today.

You joke but if Hunter leaves then the team won't have access to all of the top secret information about London Knights players like "Marner is good".

I think Hunter has played a huge part in the success of the Marlies and the draft picks he's made that have seamlessly made the leap to the Leafs. I've been impressed with the kids in the system since Hunter came aboard. Certainly Hunter doesn't deserve all the credit, but man oh man I'd hate to see some other team pick him up.

Don't downplay his ability, it would definitely be blow to the organization if he leaves. He may not have the position he wants but couldn't the Leafs make him the highest paid scout on the planet?

The word was if he didn't get the Leafs job he'd consider going back to London... in which case the Leafs could just sign whatever other uber-OHL GM who wants to work here.

Shanahan was waiting for a break between series.  After game 7 last night, Leafs can take the focus today.

REAL PLEASED.
