Sports analyst Paul Bissonnette appears to have accidentally leaked the next head coach to replace Sheldon Keefe for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Paul Bissonnette jokingly teased Craig Berube during their banter on TNT, playfully suggesting that Berube might become the new head coach of the Leafs. While it was all in good fun, the underlying message hinted at Bissonnette's interest in seeing Sheldon Keefe replaced after the Leafs tough loss to the Bruins in Game 7.

Paul Bissonnette just told Craig Berube to stop chirping him or «I'm going to break the news that you're the new Leafs head coach" and I will be spending the rest of the night freeze-frame analyzing Berube's reaction.





Berube, who led the Blues to a Stanley Cup victory in 2019, was recently let go by the team, which missed the playoffs. However, his coaching track record speaks for itself. After a stint in the AHL, he returned to the NHL and worked wonders with the Blues.



Imagine Berube bringing his tough coaching style to the Leafs. It could be just what they need to make a serious run for the Cup. Despite his recent departure from the Blues, Berube's demonstration on live TV of how the Dallas Stars shut down the Vegas Golden Knights offense in their Game 7 victory showed that he's still got the skills to make an impact.


Would Craig Berube as head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs have more success then Sheldon Keefe?
