In April, the Maple Leafs hired Brendan Shanahan to serve as the team's president and alternate governor. In July, the team fired two top front office executives in a "restructuring" move. Toronto went 38-36 and failed to make the playoffs last season. The team has not won a playoff series since 2003-04.
