The Maple Leafs parted ways with Sheldon Keefe early this offseason and replaced him with Craig Berube. Now, Keefe, the new coach of the New Jersey Devils, has taken some shots at the Toronto market.

The NHL offseason has been eventful, with many coaching changes, and Keefe's departure from Toronto was a major headline. While Keefe was polite during his exit, he recently made a remark about the Toronto market during his introduction to Devils fans.
Sheldon Keefe says that it was a tremendous honour to coach the Toronto Maple Leafs, but that he has had numerous well-established NHL coaches congratulate him on leaving the market 🗣️

Thoughts?


This comment suggests that coaching in Toronto comes with unique challenges. While Keefe was likely sharing what other veteran coaches had told him, it highlights the intense pressure associated with the Toronto market.
Keefe faced immense pressure from the moment he started in Toronto. Although expectations are high in New Jersey, it seems the environment is easier to manage.
Maple Leafs fans might take this comment personally, so when the Devils visit Toronto next season, expect a chilly reception from the Leafs' faithful.
