Despite the obvious lack of playoffs Burke hasn't crippled the Leafs with horrible contracts and they are "on paper" better than the team he took over. He's made some great trades (Jason Blake trade the obvious best trade) and the Beuchamim trade was a huge steal. Obviously some not as good trades. That's the way it goes with this.

We'll see where things go from here.
It'll be interesting. It's literally mirroring what happened in Vancouver though which is funny. I wonder what this will do to the Luongo trade.

It'll probably happen since everyone but Burke wanted it done...

Re: The NHL: Where will Luongo end up?

The timing of the firing is the weirdest part. This is gunna be an interesting pre-season.

And Burke was smart not to take it. I've heard that Vancouver wanted Gardiner AND Kadri for Lu. If Nonis gives them up, I will instantly dislike him.

Re: The NHL: Where will Luongo end up?

Nonis really shouldn't be the one you direct your hatred at if this deal happens. Nonis is likely only still there because he's willing to have strong ownership influence where as Burke wasn't. If the deal happens it's because ownership wants it to happen.

Burke got canned because ownership wanted Luongo and he wasn't willing to pay up.

You aren't going to get a franchise goalie for scraps like Kulemin and Bozak.

No he didn't. He got canned because the new ownership didn't like his style. Simple as that.
