The fate of Leafs President Brendan Shanahan has been unveiled

The Toronto Maple Leafs have already taken significant action by parting ways with Sheldon Keefe, and now attention shifts to the fate of Brendan Shanahan.

Following another playoff letdown, the Maple Leafs initiated changes by officially firing Brendan Shanahan on Thursday. Now, the focus is on President Brendan Shanahan, who has overseen the development of the team but has yet to see them make a deep Stanley Cup run.

Renowned NHL insider Elliotte Friedman recently shared insights on Shanahan's future:

Elliotte Friedman on TJMS: «I am leaning towards that [Brendan] Shanahan is staying, at least for another year.»

«I can't say that with 100% certainty, and I could always be wrong but that's the impression I'm getting.»

While Shanahan has contributed to building a strong regular-season team, the lack of playoff success may test the patience of Maple Leafs management. If Friedman's assessment holds true, Shanahan will have another season to demonstrate his leadership alongside Brad Treliving, amid other significant changes.

Maple Leafs fans have expressed frustration with the ongoing front office turmoil, calling for further changes. However, it appears that for now, the organization is maintaining stability at the executive level.

Ultimately, the focus may shift towards lineup adjustments under a new coach, as the front office structure seems poised to remain unchanged for the foreseeable future.
