The Maple Leafs quietly are attempting to lure an experienced senior executive to head up their hockey operation, Sun Media has learned.
Two high-profile National Hockey League executives have confirmed they were contacted by associates of the Leafs, seeking their interest in taking over the hockey operations of the struggling club.
Both said they weren’t interested and both asked that they not be named for obvious reasons.
At the same time, it has been learned that Maple Leafs CEO Richard Peddie recently met with legendary ex-coach Scott Bowman in Buffalo to discuss a senior position, quite possibly as team president with the Leafs.
While Bowman denies having met with Peddie and denies having interest in a position with the Leafs—“I have no interest at all,” he said in a telephone interview—Peddie was given the opportunity to deny he met with Bowman for several hours and chose not to.
