ESPN: What have your conversations with Kyle been like in the last week? Was there ever a moment when you had to kind of say, Dede Westbrook Authentic Jersey ‘Hey, don’t take any of this personally?’
Shanahan: No, no. Kyle is a pro. People keep focusing on his age a little less than his experience. I think he understands the way this works. It’s been four years with the Maple Leafs. Our conversations have really been about what we do going forward. He knows the organization as much as anybody. He’s helped me build a lot of the infrastructure around him, whether it’s the R&D or player development or the sports science … these were all challenges handed to Kyle that he handled for us.
The organization, as it’s built currently, Kyle has been an important architect of it. Like I said before, I have the ability to look behind closed doors and see decisions that were made and decisions that weren’t made. Seeing where people stood in those decisions. I felt very comfortable I was making my decision based on what I’ve seen here with the Leafs.

They’re in the hotel together. They’re eating meals together. They’re doing things together. And then [by the time] they all scatter, we’ll sign their contracts. They’ll leave knowing the contract’s done, so they don’t have to worry about that headache when they go on vacation.
