Rumor: Maple Leafs May Finally Make Shock Coaching Change

Published January 15, 2024 at 1:04 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been on the verge of a big season for a number of years now, so could a coaching change be what finally sparks them to a deep playoff run?

Toronto considering a major coaching change

According to a recent report, the Toronto Maple Leafs brass are gathering for a meeting on Monday to determine the future of their coaching staff, whether that be Head Coach Sheldon Keefe or a smaller move.

BREAKING NEWS: Leafs ownership, president, and GM are having a meeting this morning/early afternoon. Looks like a coaching change is coming. Stay tuned.

We will await further details on this potential meeting, but over their past three games, the Leafs have blown three leads in embarrassing fashion, so a move may not be the most surprising thing for their coaching staff.

Stanley Cup contenders or not?

The Maple Leafs came into 2023-24 with high expectations, and while the offense is there, the blue line and goaltending situation needs help, so this may just be the first of many moves for Toronto ahead of the March 8 trade deadline.

However, Sheldon Keefe has been considered a great coach by those in the organization, so it would be a shock to see him moved on, but given their form in recent time, absolutely anything is possible.
