Siegel: Shanahan adds 'intriguing' new voice to front office

Change was on the mind, but Brendan Shanahan wasn't looking explicitly for a new assistant general manager. The Maple Leafs president was combing the hockey world, trying to pick out the innovative thinkers, the rising stars, the great minds. One name kept coming up: Kyle Dubas, formerly the 28-year-old general manager of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and now assistant general manager to Dave Nonis in Toronto. TSN 1050 Leafs reporter Jonas Siegel has more. ...more

Siegel: Franson, Leafs come down to the wire yet again

For the third time in three years, the Maple Leafs and Cody Franson went down to the wire and begrudgingly agreed to a one-year deal. As Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 writes, Franson's camp believes his value is evident in production while the Leafs have been frustrated with his defensive limitations. Hence, the ongoing divide. ...more

Siegel: Leafs look to change 'atmosphere' with coaching hires

Two months ago, the Maple Leafs management team deemed that Randy Carlyle was the "right person" to continue lead their team, but felt the need for change somewhere in light of another late season spiral. On Friday Steve Spott and Peter Horachek were hired in a bid to further alter the atmosphere of a team deemed to be requiring "culture change" by MLSE president Tim Leiweke. TSN 1050 Leafs reporter Jonas Siegel has more. ...more

Siegel: Shanahan says jobs there to be had for Leaf youth

The Maple Leafs intend to fill what remaining holes they have on their roster through internal competition.

Siegel: Leafs target character, but Carlyle still X-factor

Two times in the past three seasons, the hockey team from Toronto has collapsed under city-rattling circumstances, including a rapid descent from near-certain playoff entry last season. In between was a valiant stab at the first Leaf post-season series win in years from a feisty, competitive group. Looking to recapture some of that magic, Leafs management made character, attitude, leadership and qualities of mental fortitude high priorities in their bid at roster reconstruction on July 1st. TSN 1050's Jonas Siegel explains. ...more

Siegel: Increased opportunity ahead for Leafs' Rielly, Gardiner

Siegel: Leafs target 'electrifying' Nylander with top pick

One year ago at the NHL draft in Newark, the Maple Leafs picked Frederik Gauthier with their first selection, a hulking centre with likely third-line potential and a low offensive ceiling. They swung for a much higher fence with the eighth overall pick on Friday night, landing the "electrifying" William Nylander from Sweden. Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 has more. ...more

Siegel: Carlyle knows change is coming to the Leafs

Back troubles limited Randy Carlyle in recent weeks, but the Maple Leafs head coach was back on his feet and busy at draft weekend in Philadelphia. Carlyle, alongside team president Brendan Shanahan and general manager Dave Nonis, continued to hunt for the remainders of a coaching staff, following the dismissal of his three assistant coaches. Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 has more. ...more

Siegel: Nonis says Leafs unlikely to trade up for top spot

Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis spoke to Florida Panthers boss Dale Tallon on Thursday morning about the prospects of trading up for the first overall pick in Friday's draft. "But at this point," Nonis said a few hours after the conversation, "I don't think there's a deal there for us." Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 has more. ...more
