Well, it looks like it’s a done deal. After several days of rampant speculation, it looks like Brendan Shanahan is set to take over as President of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club. From Damien Cox over at the Toronto Star:

"Shanahan, according to multiple sources, will resign his position as the NHL’s director of player safety as early as Friday and immediately join the Leafs this weekend as the team closes out a disappointing season.

Many of my coworkers at CBC received some pretty disheartening though not unexpected news today that the CBC will be making massive cuts. But what happens now? Does everyone just go home? No. The show must go on.

With context to the Leafs, they are out of playoff contention. But guess what? There are still two games left. The show must go on, and tonight it does, against the Florida Panthers.
