Hopefully Brunette lands on his feet. I grew up playing with his brother. Andrew was a very underrated goal scorer(I'll be it, a poor skater).

Guess who totally used the Buffalo as leverage to get paid more where he actually wanted to go...

It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

No surprise here: Stevie Y to take over from Holland.

Exactly, no surprise at all.  As soon as he stepped down with the Lightning, it was a fait accompli he'd be back in Detroit.   ::)

Did he have advanced notice that his Lightening would be out in the 1st round?   :-\

Yzerman stepped down as GM of the Lightning right at the beginning of the season. He was just waiting for the final year of his contract to end. His deal with Detroit has probably been in place for weeks or months.

I'm doubting the Leafs will block it this year. Apparently they blocked it last year when a team asked.

He originally signed a 4-year deal, so unless he signed an extension that we never heard about then his deal expires this summer.

I never heard of them extending him. I have a feeling he might be done anyway.

I kind of hope the Leafs take a swing at Ralph Krueger (Team Europe, Swiss National Team, 2014 Team Canada assistant, 2013 Edmonton). Even though he’s sort of pretty committed to running the Southampton football club, he has said the right NHL fit could lure him back. He has a fan in Babcock and believes in coaching a style that fits the players on the roster and would be a good, amenable balancing voice for Babcock to work with.

Edit: correction, Krueger has left his position at Southampton FC earlier this month. Might not be interested in the coaching grind either.

Haha is this even necessary to tweet? Did Gillis personally hurt him?

He did the same thing with Lombardi too earlier. I think he's dunking on the media who are reporting things like this, not Gillis.

11. OK, Toronto. The No. 1 thing the Maple Leafs are going to work on: eliminate the drama. In that market, it is unavoidable, but you can’t pour gasoline on the fire. Much of that will be eased by the necessary roster decisions, since contracts are at the heart of so many public and private debates.

The coach and GM have to figure out if their differing philosophies allow them to continue together. If Buffalo (or anyone else) comes calling for Keefe, does that force Toronto to make a decision? There’s speculation the Maple Leafs would add Keefe as an assistant if they lost Smith or Jim Hiller, but that’s like playing with nitroglycerine and hoping it doesn’t explode. (Hiller has another year under contract, but there are a few teams interested). My personal belief was that Mike Babcock returns for next season, but now I’m not sure. Let’s just say, for argument’s sake, that Buffalo asks to speak to him. What happens then?

So Hiller has one more year and Smith is expiring this July?
