The Toronto Maple Leafs, who have been in the hockey spotlight for about a week now, are looking for a new general manager to lead their historic franchise.

According to former Leaf Carlo Colaiacovo on TSN's First Up radio show, Jim Nill, the current general manager of the Dallas Stars, could be a strong candidate due to his close ties with Leafs president Brendan Shanahan.

Colaiacovo mentioned that Nill's availability for an interview might coincide with the Stars' playoff elimination.

Nill spent 13 years in the NHL, including time with the Boston Bruins. He is known for making impressive draft selections in 2017 where he drafted Miro Heiskanen, Jason Robertson, and Jake Oettinger who have all became a big part of the Dallas Stars. hockeypatrol.com

His potential appointment would align with the Leafs' desired profile for an experienced candidate who has worked with star-studded teams. If Nill becomes available, he would be a top contender for the Maple Leafs' general manager position. Source: MapleLeafsinsider.com
