Some state Mitch Marner doesn’t have a concern with Sheldon Keefe
TSN: Darren Dreger when asked if there was any fallout from Mitch Marner being quickly benched on Sunday.
“Well, I can inform you firstly, absolutely, some near to Mitch Marner state there is absolutely no fact to this continuous speculation that he has a concern with his head coach Sheldon Keefe. Now, do they enjoy the reality that they’re not playing terrific hockey? Of course not, that consists of the coach, that consists of the star gamers, that’s everybody connected with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
But there are some questioning whether the tinkering by Sheldon Keefe particular to Marner may consist of handling his ice time a bit. Mitch Marner averages anywhere from 20 minutes per video game to 27 minutes per video game, so maybe by backing that off a bit he’s more fresh, you invest a few of that ice time into your bottom 6 and it ends up being a win-win for all.
Sheldon Keefe and Barry Trotz
TSN: Pierre LeBrun when inquired about Barry Trotz with Toronto Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe being on the spot. When could we see Trotz back training?
LeBrun notes that from his interview with Trotz last month and it’s still the case now, Trotz stated he wasn’t all set yet as he still has some individual things he wishes to get looked after. Trotz might not be all set up until December.
“In the meantime, speaking of Leaf coaches, they’re still paying a previous coach in Mike Babcock $5.8 million this season, the in 2015 of that eight-year offer returning to 2015 they’re paying him through June 30.
I bring this up due to the fact that if the Leafs do choose to make a training modification at some time, think about that they’re still paying Babcock, Sheldon Keefe makes simply under $2 million, so that would be $7.8 million dollars that they’d be paying previous coaches if they make a modification, not to point out the wage of a brand-new coach. So we understand MLSE has deep pockets, however it’s something to think about.
Ways to repair the Toronto Maple Leafs
Michael Traikos of the Toronto Sun: Five methods to repair the Toronto Maple Leafs.
1 Fire the coach – Seems like Sheldon Keefe might have lost the space. Barry Trotz lacks a task.
2. Fire the GM – Kyle Dubas hasn’t constructed a champion group in the 5 years leading the group. Changing GM mid-season isn’t simple.
3. Make a trade – They require a top-four defenseman, possibly 2. Offer up Alex Kerfoot or Nick Robertson and pursue Jakob Chychrun or John Klingberg.
4. Switch lines – Split up Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. Put William Nylander with Matthews and Marner with John Tavares.
5. Do absolutely nothing – The Leafs began 4-4-2 in 2015 too and ended up the season with 115 points.
