5 questions facing the Toronto Maple Leafs heading into the off-season

Bruins right wing David Pastrnak right during Game 7 of the first round series

We were talking to Darren Ferris at the beginning of the season and I'll call Darren in the coming day or so and begin to see how he would like it to proceed and how Mitch and his family would like it to proceed.

For the third straight season the Toronto Maple Leafs have failed to make it out of the first round of the playoffs - and for the third time in seven seasons Boston eliminated them in seven games. The Leafs are 2-3 in elimination games under Babcock, and 0-3 at chances to win the series over the past two years.

"They can", he said at Scotiabank Arena. "We have a tremendous amount of respect for them, I can tell you that". All these instances are standing up for other people. "Just want to play for this team, I love the people in this locker-room and the people that work in this organization".

Earlier this season in March, there were rumblings of Dubas and Babcock taking shots at each other a little more publicly than we're used to.

The takeaway here, though, should be that the Leafs didn't get screwed out of a series by poor officiating or bad luck - they just lost to a better team.

Nazem Kadri, whether you think his series-long suspension was warranted or not, removed himself from the lineup for a second consecutive postseason. General manager Kyle Dubas hired Sheldon Keefe as his head coach in junior hockey.

"His temperance is a major point", Dubas said. "Our last two games we have played well". "Great play by him at a clutch time".

"It's a major challenge for him character-wise".

Two types of comparables will be discussed when negotiations get going again: Those from the inside, namely Auston Matthews ($11.634-million across five years) and John Tavares ($11-million across seven years), and those given out by other National Hockey League teams.

Luckily for Toronto, once they turf Dubas to the curb and bring in Chiarelli, he can then turn to a team like Edmonton to acquire these players.

"It ended up going in, so we'll take it", Nordstrom said.

"But I thought it was outstanding".

"I personally felt good from the start of the series".

Defenceman Jake Gardiner (who had played a mostly excellent series to that point) made a bad play at a awful time leading to the game-winning goal. He actually finished the first round as the only forward not to be on the ice for a five-on-five goal scored by the B's, too.

Gardiner has had back troubles in the past. Apart from missing one of their grittiest players, Kadri's absence forced the Leafs into playing William Nylander at centre on the third line instead of having the option of moving up him up on the wing alongside Auston Matthews if need be.

"I'm not anxious about that", Kadri said of his future with the Leafs.
