Kukla's Korner Hockey

From David Shoalts at the Globe & Mail:
Peddie, the president of MLSE, confirmed this week “we’ve slowed down the search” for a new president, although he declined to offer any more details.
Picking a new president may seem a minor concern to those celebrating the potential departure of an outfit long-vilified for wanting all of the perquisites of owning a public trust like the Toronto Maple Leafs and none of the responsibility. But this should be a big deal, not only to Leafs fans but the fans of all the teams owned by MLSE (the NBA’s Toronto Raptors, AHL’s Toronto Marlies and Toronto FC of the MLS).
Peddie’s official retirement date is the end of December, but he could actually take his leave (with a nice fat consultant’s contract in hand, I’ll bet) by July 1. MLSE’s fiscal year-end is June 30, and Peddie has the company purring smoothly – at least as far as money matters are concerned – so it would make sense to put the new fellow in place when the new financial year starts.
