The real reason Toronto isn't re-signing this person

In a stunning twist, the true catalyst behind Toronto Maple Leafs' General Manager Kyle Dubas parting ways with the team has finally been revealed.

Contrary to previous explanations of Dubas' departure, which cited a desire to prioritize family commitments, recent insights shared by Maple Leafs President Brendan Shanahan shed new light on the situation. It appears that Dubas' departure was triggered by a significant divergence in his contract negotiations with the team.

Reports indicate that Dubas had sought a substantial salary increase, aiming for a figure between $6-7 million, while the Leafs were only willing to offer $4 million. This significant gap in financial expectations ultimately prompted Shanahan to recognize the need for a fresh approach within the organization.

As the search for a new General Manager commences, the Maple Leafs find themselves at a crucial juncture in their pursuit of success. Dubas' departure signifies the end of an era and signals the start of a new chapter for the esteemed franchise.
