Coach Randy Carlyle has been impressed with his players since they were throttled by Nashville
"What (losing 9-2 has) done, it's crystallized our team in some way," Carlyle said before Wednesday's game. "The desperation level has gone up in our group, understanding it's just unacceptable to get beat like that in your own building. Maybe it woke people up." The Leafs have earned five of a possible six points in the standings and they've held their opponents under 30 shots each time. Nov 27 - 11:11 AM

MLSE president and chief executive officer Tim Leiweke will stay in the fold until June 30, 2015 or until a new CEO is found.

"Under Tim's leadership, MLSE has made a number of key moves to strengthen our organization on the path to championship success," said MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum. "We look forward to working closely with Tim to build on this foundation and further accelerate our momentum as we seek a new leader for MLSE." Leiweke denied a report that he would be leaving Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment "soon" before they came out and cleared up the uncertainty. He plans to pursue the goal of owning and operating his own business.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have hired Brandon Pridham to serve as an assistant to GM Dave Nonis.

He had been with the NHL as senior director of central registry and central scouting. With the Leafs, he will "assist with salary-cap analysis, contract negotiations and collective bargaining agreement interpretation." Yahoo Sports' Greg Wyshynski is also reporting that Toronto has added Darryl Metcalf and Cam Charron to their growing analytics department. Metcalf operated ExtraSkater.com, which was a great resource for "fancy stats" until the site went dark last week.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have extended their affiliation agreement with ECHL Orlando.

The Minnesota Wild were also affiliated with Orlando in 2013-14, but the Maple Leafs will have the team to themselves going forward. "The Leafs are extremely pleased to renew our affiliation with the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL," said Maple Leafs GM David Nonis. "As an organization, we are confident that our future prospects will continue to develop professionally under the tutelage of Solar Bears coach Vince Williams." Orlando had a 43-24-2-3 record last season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have fired former vice president of hockey operations Dave Poulin and assistant general manager Claude Loiselle.

Although Toronto hasn't engaged in a major shakeup of its roster and has decided to retain head coach Randy Carlyle and GM Dave Nonis, the Maple Leafs have engaged in a personnel shakeup after they endured yet another spectacular collapse in 2013-14. They have also hired 28-year-old Kyle Dubas to serve as an assistant general manager. Dubas previously served as the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds' general manager for three years. He was one of the youngest GMs in OHL history when he originally took the job with the Greyhounds.

The Toronto Maple Leafs ranked 26th on Forbes' list of the top 50 most valuable sports franchises.

The Maple Leafs are worth $1.15 billion in their estimation, which makes them not only the most valuable NHL franchise, but also the only hockey team on the top 50 list. It's worth noting that there might be a disconnect between what franchises are worth based on Forbes' estimates and what people are willing to pay for some of them. Forbes says that the Los Angeles Clippers are worth less than $856 million as that was the cutoff to make the list and they weren't on it. Despite that, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is trying to buy the team for $2 billion. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman suggested that might be due to the uniqueness of the Los Angeles market, but also added that a recent survey suggested that franchise values have increased about 46% over the last year.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have tapped Peter Horachek and Steve Spott to serve as assistant coaches next season.

Horachek spent the bulk of the 2013-14 campaign serving as the Florida Panthers interim head coach. He led the team to a 26-36-4 record, which wasn't terrible given what he had to work with, but Panthers GM Dale Tallon wanted to go in a different direction. Spott spent last season serving as the AHL Toronto Marlies' bench boss and led them to the Western Conference Final.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are likely to stick with the eighth overall pick.

GM Dave Nonis downplayed the impact that trading up would have. "Moving up to (picks) one or two or three, does that increase your odds of picking an impact player?" Nonis said. "It does. But I believe, and I think most people believe, that the odds aren't that different this year. It’s not something we're desperate to do and we're pretty content we're going to get a quality player at eight." Based on earlier reports, it sounds like Maple Leafs had interest in the top pick, but they might have balked at Florida's demands.

The President and CEO of Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment, Tim Lieweke, confirmed that Toronto is coveting hosting duties for the next World Cup of Hockey, a future NHL Draft, Winter Classic, and NHL All-Star game.

"Why there hasn’t been a Winter Classic in Canada is a mistake and it shows a lack of respect to this city," the outspoken executive said on Wednesday to the media. BMO Field would be a possible venue for an outdoor game in Toronto, home of Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC. The outdoor stadium is about to get revamped to fit 40,000 fans.

Toronto has plenty of homes games early in the 2014-15 campaign.

The Toronto Maple Leafs will play the Montreal Canadiens at home twice this season; the first night of the regular season and the last.

Talk about a scheduling quirk! The two sides also meet twice in Montreal, on Saturday February 14 and two weeks later on February 28.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are reportedly interested in moving up in the draft.

They currently hold the eighth pick overall, but the Florida Panthers are willing to part with the top selection. There's speculation that Nazem Kadri might be involved in such a trade and that would likely be enough to get the Panthers attention. Take this all with a grain of salt though as trades involving the top pick are often the source of speculation, but rarely come to fruition.

Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan doesn't want to shake up the team just for the sake of change.

"When something doesn't go well for them, it's probably a disservice to always run to the rescue and fire this guy and trade this guy," he said. "Sometimes it's about coming back with certain key individuals. Say, 'You're coming back and you're going to be better.' I've been on too many teams that were accused of not having mental toughness until they won." Shanahan is trying to preach patience for the time being, but it won't stop the names of Toronto's players from appearing in trade rumors leading into next season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs decision to keep head coach Randy Carlyle is shifting more of the blame for the team's 2013-14 shortcomings on the players.

"It's easy to put a lot of the blame on the coaching staff, it's a simple thing to do," Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis said. "But we all have to take some responsibility for our play during the year. I do. Our coaching staff does ... and one we don't talk about enough is our players do." In addition to extending their head coach, the Maple Leafs are reportedly actively looking to make a trade. Given that Nazem Kadri and Jake Gardiner have both been cited among the players being discussed, the deals Toronto might make have the potential to be substantial.
