About a week ago the Toronto Maple Leafs announced the hiring of John Ferguson Jr as their general manager. He will be the youngest GM in the NHL, taking over from Pat Quinn, who will continue his term as coach of the team.
Not long after this decision, questions were already being asked about who holds the most clout within Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. There is the notorious "Board of Directors", who are in most likelyhood there to maximize return for the Ontario Teachers Pension fund, Ken Dryden, Richard Peddie, and Pat Quinn. John Ferguson Jr seems to have landed with a unique set of egos and personalities.
