Yesterday afternoon, Sportsnet's Damien Cox posted a Weekend Takeaways article online that suggested the Toronto Maple Leafs should consider retaining current General Manager Dave Nonis, despite many believing that he's as good as gone come the offseason.

From Cox:

While some want to sum up the entire Nonis era with the two words “David Clarkson,” a more thoughtful analysis of what he inherited from Brian Burke, what he’s done with it and overall patience with which the team has proceeded in all areas under his watch suggests Shanahan would do well to seriously consider retaining his services beyond this season.

Wait, what?

On Monday though Sportsnet's Damien Cox offered up a new name, one that was absent even from Darren Dreger's big board: goaltender Jonathan Bernier.

"I wouldn't be shocked guys if they moved even Jonathan Bernier," Cox told Greg Brady and Andrew Walker during an appearance on the Brady and Walker morning show on Sportsnet 590 the Fan on Monday.

Scratching Clarkson Shows That Leafs Management Doesn’t Get it. #MyColumn:

David Clarkson can't believe it and neither can I.

It’s been a tough month in Leafland, with the Leafs losing 11 in a row and just being inept at everything. Horachek has been a bust of a coach, Kessel has disappeared as predicted, and Bernier has had his first real flutter in an otherwise flawless Leafs career. 

But none of that is as bad, misguided, and - most importantly - classless, as scratching David Clarkson.
