Scotty Bowman spoke about the Toronto Maple Leafs' front-office job, Sunday, after the Red Wings' day of scrimmaging and practices were done. Bowman said that Toronto called Jimmy Devellano before speaking with Bowman. The Maple Leafs were trying to create a new executive position to which general manager John Ferguson Jr. would report. Bowman said that he was contacted by Richard Peddie
, CEO of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment. Bowman had a meeting, "out of courtesy" according to Bowman. The job, however, wasn't a fit for either side and Bowman said that he is not going to the Maple Leafs.
"It's sort of the same job I have here," said Bowman. "I wasn't interested in that. I didn't know any of those people."
