Who is Dubas, and why does his ascension to GM, as a replacement for former longtime New Jersey Devils exec Lou Lamoriello, mark such a significant change of pace for the Maple Leafs?

Both Team President Brendan Shanahan and Dubas were asked whether the Leafs would look to add someone to their management team and while they were non-committal on Friday, there has been speculation that whether Hunter leaves or not, that Toronto will bring an experienced hand on board. "This morning I informed Lou that I was not going to deviate from that course of action".

Under Dubas' watch, the Marlies won the Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy (awarded to the AHL's best team during the regular-season) in two of the last three seasons.

He oversaw the top prospects as GM of the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies. In his four seasons as General Manager, the Marlies have a record of 190-90-20-4 and have developed eight members of the 2017-18 Toronto Maple Leafs final roster (Connor Brown, Connor Carrick, Travis Dermott, Zach Hyman, Andreas Johnsson, Kasperi Kapanen, Josh Leivo and William Nylander). Obviously, a move to Colorado never came to fruition, but Dubas opened up about what happened with that situation and much more during an appearance on Prime Time Sports.

"I still think we're growing", Shanahan said.

"It was a hard decision in that we had two such qualified people", Shanahan said during the press conference. Marie, Dubas was the second youngest GM in OHL history at the age of 25.
