Ferguson On His Way Out

I've been working on this for the last few hours, and according to two seperate sources I've talked to, John Ferguson Jr will be fired as the GM of the Maple Leafs. The question everyone is still trying to figure out is when. From what I have heard, the Leafs have every intention of letting go of Ferguson soon, but would like to have a replacement General Manager before they do so. MLSE understands how important this trade deadline is to the Maple Leafs, with Sundin and Kaberle being two very moveable pieces at this point. A few rumblings have Scotty Bowman being contacted, but at this time I can tell you that between now and the end of the month, it's almost a sure thing that the Leafs will have someone new filling the GM's job.

More information as it comes in
