What I like about this is that they didn't fuck it up. Very non-Leaf like. I'm getting used to competence.

I think (hope) all the Hunter talk was media bs. I don't think he wanted the job or, at least, he knew it probably wasn't going to be his anyway. I doubt Hunter is going anywhere with his ties to S Ontario (hopefully).

Finally.  Although we all knew it was going to happen, I was starting to get a little nervous that it had taken so long.  I'm interested to see what moves he makes this summer.
Also, so long Polak!

This decision was made a long time ago, when Colorado expressed interest in grabbing him.

Glad we're going with the moneyball kid on this one.

Shanny said in the presser that Mark wanted the job. 

I could see Hunter leaving the Leafs and going back to his job in London.

Hopefully they both stay.

He absolutely wanted the GM position, he interviewed for it. That said everyone has known that Dubas was the heir apparent for the GM role, if he really did want a GM position he would probably have left before now, or he will leave sometime soon. I agree that his Southern Ontario ties probably play a big factor in him staying here even if he is not the GM.

I believe Hunter has one more year on his contact.  I'm hoping he at least sticks around to finish that out.

I love this move. I love Hunter and all his knowledge and am truly hopeful that Dubas can convince him to buy in on his management team but I think Dubas is the right man for the job.

I love his work with the Marlies who are possibly going for the Calder this year. Dubas know hockey and has a fresh new approach. Looking forward to seeing him do his stuff.

Mirtle suggests Ron Francis could be an option for filling any vacancies in front office. 

“They’re close” - referring to relationship between Dubas and Ronnie Franchise.

Sounds like a good move to me. A respectable young group Francis put together in Carolina.

None of that matters. Haven't you heard? Strategy is useless. It's all about culture now.
