Dave Nonis fired

Toronto Maple Leafs fire GM and coaching staff

The axe just fell in Leafland. After a dismal season, team President Brendan Shanahan cleaned house by letting go of GM Dave Nonis, head coach Peter Horachek, and the rest of the coaching staff. The move doesn't exactly come as surprise given the depths to which the team has sunk. Clearly, Shanahan wants to show he means business about righting the ship.

GM duties will be split between Assistant GM Kyle Dubas and Director of Player Personnel Mark Hunter for the time being, though one has to imagine that the club will look to name a new GM sooner rather than later. The draft is still months away, but there is obviously a ton of work to do.

What do you think? Who's your dream candidate for a new Toronto Maple Leafs GM?
