On this episode, Steve is on his honeymoon, so I join Adam and Chris to talk about David Booth, the Leafs' new-look bottom six, Kyle Dubas, and the first time Dangle got noticed in public.

A new assistant GM in the morning, and a new player in the afternoon. The day hasn't stopped for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who have inked David Booth to a 1 year, 1.1 million dollar deal.

At about 7:30 AM, my eyes opened to the tune of "Jeff, wake up, I got an alert from TheScore". It was noted living human being, girlfriend haver, and TheLeafsNation writer Cam Charron, whose couch I've been sleeping on during my several bonus days in Vancouver (I head back home late tonight). "(Dave) Poulin and (Claude) Loiselle have been fired and the Leafs hired Kyle Dubas."
I thought he was kidding at first, but he was very much serious. In my initial assumption, lies the very reason for my excitement.

I was wondering when the first NHL team would jump on Kyle Dubas, the young Ontario Hockey League general manager who has turned around the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds program since his arrival. The Greyhounds have redefined the way they look for talent through the draft and how they break down player performance.
I did not think it would ever be the Toronto Maple Leafs, but this is apparently that new world.
