John Tavares

Sheldon Keefe's recent lineup decisions for the Toronto Maple Leafs have raised eyebrows, particularly regarding the positioning of star center John Tavares. The unexpected shift sees Max Domi stepping into Tavares' former spot on the second line, a move that has become increasingly permanent.

Tavares, once a cornerstone of the Maple Leafs' offense, finds himself relegated to the third line alongside Bobby McMann and Nicolas Robertson. Meanwhile, Domi has seamlessly taken over second-line duties, partnering with Tyler Bertuzzi and William Nylander.
No lineup changes for the Leafs tonight in Colorado, coach Sheldon Keefe says

While Tavares' $11 million cap hit on the third line may not be ideal, Keefe's choice reflects the team's recent success with the adjusted lineup. The decision to maintain Domi's position suggests a more long-term strategy by the Maple Leafs' coach.
Keefe's stance hints at doubts about Tavares' ability to match up against top-tier talent, signaling a significant shift in the team's dynamic moving forward.
