The Toronto Maple Leafs have hired Lou Lamoriello to be their new general manager.

Lou Lamoriello was hired today by the Toronto Maple Leafs to be their new general manager, after quitting the New Jersey Devils as president. The team had been without one since the firing of Dave Nonis after this most recent season, and Lamoriello stepped down as GM of the Devils back in May of this year.

This seems to be a bit of an odd move, and I'll get to that in a second.
