The insider Darren Dreger hinted at why the Toronto Maple Leafs will hire Craig Berube as their next head coach.

It's been almost a week since the Toronto Maple Leafs decided to fire Sheldon Keefe after five years of loyal services behind the Leafs' bench. Management announced it in their end-of-season press conference, but the quest for Keefe's replacement has already started.

We already knew that two front-runners were identified in the past few days: Todd McLellan and Craig Berube, two coaches that were let go by their teams, the Los Angeles Kings and the St. Louis Blues earlier in the season.

However, a new development from Darren Dreger shed light on why the Leafs look like a team that's going to hire Craig Berube.


According to him, the Leafs met once with McLellan yesterday, but twice with Berube: once over the weekend, and the other on Monday:

"dreger on tsn1050 says the leafs met with berube on saturday *and* parts of yesterday

with other teams seemingly pivoting to other options, and the leafs meeting with berube twice, really feels like treliving has his guy"



While many other candidates are available, meeting twice with the same guy means there's real interest from the organization and Berube as well.
