This comes in response to club president Brendan Shanahan’s unprecedented public account of the circumstances surrounding Dubas’ departure last week. Shanahan said Dubas’ revelation to the media eight days ago that he was hesitating with a return due to the strain last season has taken on him and his family has cast him into doubts about extending his expiring contract, what Shanahan claimed was a late change in terms by Dubas’ agents that further soured relations between the once-close duo.

“While I realize there is an interest in the circumstances of my departure, I will not go into the details,” read part of Dubas’ statement. “During the days I felt I needed to assess and evaluate my own view of the future, both in terms of the club’s necessary direction and in making sure I had my family’s full support for what what I felt would be required in the future Off-season and in the years that followed, the organization decided, as is within their rights, to take a different direction.”

Dubas, while asking for time to speak with his family, had said he would either return to the Leafs or take time off. The layoff shifted that narrative, leaving people wondering just how burned out the GM really was, while Shanahan went in search of a new GM with several key contract issues.

Keefe finished his message, signed “The Dubas Family,” thanking “an extremely passionate fanbase” and the Leafs for nine years of service, from the MLSE board to the Scotiabank Arena ushers, as well as players, coaches and other staff .

“It was a great pleasure working with you. We will roll from here.”
