As first reported here (just kidding, just always wanted to say that!).
TSN is reporting that Joe Nieuwendyk is going to meet with the Leafs brass this week in attempt to hammer out an agreement to join the front office.
This is a good move by Cliff to continue the trend around the league of bringing in recently retired, highly regarded NHL players to take on a management role..
There may be much more to this than just hiring Joe Nieuwendyk, but more on that tomorrow….
