After the Toronto Maple Leafs released Kyle Dubas from his position, President Brendan Shanahan made a promise to the Core 4 players (Matthews, Tavares, Marner, and Nylander) that the team would not trade any of them, regardless of the new general manager.
Shanahan Breaking Promises
However, according to Luke Fox of Sportsnet, Shanahan's ability to make such a promise may be questionable.
"Fox explains that it would be unorthodox for Shanahan to make these assurances before selecting a new general manager, as it could hinder the new GM's ability to make independent decisions and potentially deter qualified candidates.
Fox argues that allowing the new general manager to shape the roster according to their vision is crucial, and Shanahan's pre-existing promises to the Core 4 players might complicate this process."
I agree with Luke Fox's viewpoint. Shanahan's public promises to the Core 4 players prior to appointing a new general manager may not align with standard protocol.
It is essential for a new GM to have the freedom to make their own decisions and mold the team according to their strategic vision. By imposing pre-existing player commitments, Shanahan might inadvertently limit the new GM's ability to implement necessary changes.
This could also dissuade potential candidates who prefer a more autonomous role in shaping the team. Allowing the new general manager the flexibility to leave their mark on the roster is vital for the team's long-term success.
