The Toronto Maple Leafs have rescheduled their upcoming press conference to Friday, as shared by NHL insider Chris Johnston. Brad Treliving, Brendan Shanahan, and Keith Pelly will be in attendance, fielding questions from the media.

Originally set for Thursday, the end-of-year media availability's postponement has sparked speculation about potential offseason moves.

The #leafs have moved Thursday's scheduled end-of-season management media availability to Friday and will have Keith Pelley, Brendan Shanahan and Brad Treliving in attendance.

Shanahan's presence is particularly notable, as he seldom addresses the media publicly. His last significant remarks about the Leafs came during last offseason's dismissal of general manager Kyle Dubas. This departure from Shanahan's usual approach adds to the intrigue surrounding Friday's event.

Shanahan rarely speaks, the CEO has not made a Leaf related media event since the Tim Leiweke era.

The uncertainty surrounding the team's direction has fans eagerly awaiting news. Despite commitments to their core players like Auston Matthews and William Nylander, changes, especially behind the bench, seem likely. During the initial round of exit interviews, head coach Sheldon Keefe accepted responsibility for the team's shortcomings this season.

Keefe's possible replacement looms large, but other potential changes remain unclear. The Maple Leafs' offseason promises to be one of anticipation and speculation.
