The Leafs job fair moves along on and the list of candidates grows and grows. Hire someone, Shanny, before our standards hit rock bottom and we start considering former Oilers.
Oh god, he's right behind me isn't he...

Bylsma, you ready? Good, 'cause you're up next in our series of very real and not at all fake coaching resumes.

I'm eating a chocolate chip granola bar right now. It is very tasty. I'm also having a bottle of water. It is very watery. Neither of these statements are relevant to anything, but I couldn't think up a better intro. With that said, here are a few of your questions (we had a lot of them this week).

In the recent days and weeks there seems to be more of a buzz surrounding the Leafs' search for a general manager and head coach. It's been a month now since the Leafs' season ended, and a month since Peter Horachek and Dave Nonis were relieved of their respective duties. We are heading into the middle of May now. Soon there will only be 4 teams whose NHL season is still alive. And of course, the draft and free agency are starting to come into sight. In other words, it's getting likelier and likelier that the Leafs will make a decision about their new manager and bench boss sooner rather than later.
Here at TLN we've been pumping out a lot of content about prospective coaches and GMs, creating mock resumes that give you a glimpse of what these hockey minds have to offer. What we haven't done a lot of though is compare these people with each other. We've really only touched the surface of what some of the Leafs' head coaching candidates bring to the table. Today, I want to take you beneath that surface.
