Report: Leafs Will Replace John Ferguson Jr.
Tuesday January 22, 2008
After weeks of speculation unconfirmed reports suggest the Toronto Maple Leafs may finally be ready to replace General Manager John Ferguson Jr. According to a league source, Cliff Fletcher will take over as interim G.M. A formal announcement on the move is expected sometime Tuesday.
Despite rumours that the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment board of directors met Monday to decide the fate of the position, MLSE president Richard Peddie says he hasn't relieved Ferguson of his duties.
"I have not fired John (Ferguson),'" Peddie said Tuesday morning.
The Leafs have won three of their last four games, but have largely struggled in January. They've also missed the playoffs the past two years and are in 14th place in the NHL's Eastern Conference standings.
If Fletcher gets the nod, it will be his second tenure with the team. He was GM of the Leafs from 1991 to 1997.
