The Toronto Maple Leafs seem poised for a coaching shake-up, with current Head Coach Sheldon Keefe possibly on his way out.

The team is reportedly looking to bring in a seasoned veteran to take the helm.
TSN's Darren Dreger has identified three top contenders for the job: Craig Berube, Todd McLellan, and Gerard Gallant.
"Dreger considers it "more likely" than not there is a coaching change in Toronto. Considers Berube a "top contender" for the job, with the stipulation that he has also interviewed in New Jersey. Leafs would be hiring a head coach with experience; McLellan and Gallant also named"

Among them, Craig Berube appears to be the favorite. Berube, who has led teams for nearly eight seasons in the NHL, notably guided the St. Louis Blues to their first Stanley Cup victory during his inaugural season.
Todd McLellan stands out for his extensive experience, having coached in the NHL for over 16 seasons with teams like San Jose, Edmonton, and Los Angeles. He twice led the Sharks to the Western Conference Finals in 2010 and 2011.
Gerard Gallant also brings a wealth of experience, with 11 seasons of NHL coaching under his belt, including stints with Columbus, Florida, Vegas, and the New York Rangers. His resume includes five playoff runs, highlighted by leading the Vegas Golden Knights to the Stanley Cup Final in 2018.
Beyond finding a new coach, the Maple Leafs face a critical offseason. With potential changes looming for their 'Core 4', the team must strategize carefully to contend for a deep playoff run in 2025. It's a pivotal time for the organization, and the decisions made this summer could define its trajectory for years to come.
