Who will be the Maple Leafs’ next general manager?

After firing Kyle Dubas on May 19, the Toronto Maple Leafs are in search of a new general manager.

The Toronto Maple Leafs' season was going so well, until it wasn’t. 

Without a Stanley Cup Playoff series win since 2004 entering this postseason, Toronto defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games in the opening round. The triumph was a watershed moment for the franchise and its fans, or so they thought. 

Less than 20 days later, they were eliminated from the playoffs by the Florida Panthers, triggering the same questions that usually linger around Toronto this time of year. 

Is it time to ‘blow it up?’

When Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan relieved general manager Kyle Dubas of his duties one week later, the answer was an unequivocal ‘yes.’

Who will Toronto hire as its next general manager? Continue reading for the full market and latest odds.

Latest odds to be General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 1, 2023

Odds subject to change. Odds correct as of 5/28/23.

Brad Treliving -250

Treliving served as general manager of the Calgary Flames for nine years - from April 2014 until April 2023 - before the parties mutually agreed to part ways. Treliving’s contract with Calgary was set to expire in June. 

The 53-year-old has developed a strong reputation in the NHL Draft, when in 2016, he drafted potential 2023 Conn Smythe Trophy winner Matthew Tkachuk with the sixth overall pick.

Eric Tulsky +700

Tulsky has served as assistant general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes for eight seasons, helping lead the franchise to five-straight postseasons, each of which resulted in at least one series win for the ‘Canes.

Tulsky was interviewed for the Pittsburgh Penguins GM job, but is reportedly out of the running as of May 24.

Brandon Pridham +900

The current acting general manager of the Maple Leafs, Pridham was thrust into the role after Dubas was let go. How the 44-year-old navigates the coming weeks could be the deciding factor for whether Shanahan goes with an outside hire or promotes Pridham.

Mark Hunter +1600

Once co-general managers of the Maple Leafs alongside Dubas, Hunter has been working as GM of the London Knights of the OHL since parting ways with Toronto in 2018.

Stan Bowman +1600

Perhaps the most decorated candidate on the board, Bowman oversaw the Chicago Blackhawks’ dynasty of the early 2010s that won three Stanley Cups in six years. 

But Bowman resigned from his position with Chicago in October 2022 after investigators determined he failed to report alleged assault cases committed by staff members to authorities.

Marc Bergevin +1600

Mike Gillis +1600

Doug Armstrong +1600

Laurence Gilman +1600 

Peter Chiarelli +1600 

Jason Botterill +2000 

Jim Benning +2500 

Ron Hextall +2500

Michael Futa +4000 

Ray Whitney +4000 

Brian Burke +6000 

Doug Gilmour +8000
