Leafs fire Burke
 
@TSNBobMcKenzie: Toronto Maple Leafs have apparently fired Brian Burke as general manager. Working on official confirmations.

Gee Wally 01-09-2013 11:28 AM

LOL !

this outta be pissah.

:laugh:

Did he offer Kessel for BobbyLou?

or

Did he want Timmah instead?

DaStinger 01-09-2013 11:29 AM

I almost feel bad for them now, shoulda happened 3 years ago. Guy set them back years in their rebuild and somehow managed to stick around when Wilson got fired....

go_leafs_go02 01-09-2013 11:29 AM

Mindboggling at this point...

Zdeno33Lucic 01-09-2013 11:30 AM

Lol.. Out of nowhere!

MaritimeHockeyNut 01-09-2013 11:30 AM

brom7 01-09-2013 11:31 AM

Fire Julien 01-09-2013 11:31 AM

On behalf of all bruins fans i'd like to say, "thank you." :D

Kaoz 01-09-2013 11:36 AM

Wow, just confirmed by Kypreos on twitter.

And there was supposed to be a Luongo deal announced tomorrow.

CDJ* 01-09-2013 11:38 AM

He'll be out of a job for 5 seconds.

But thank you BURKE! He rebuilt our franchise more than he rebuilt Toronto's

24giovanni 01-09-2013 11:39 AM

Did the Leaf's owner just find out what the Bruins received in the trade for Kessel ? LOL

Btown 01-09-2013 11:40 AM

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy...

MaritimeHockeyNut 01-09-2013 11:41 AM

Can't happen until the MOU is ratified and that's not happening until Saturday, so there is some falsity to that rumour. Could still happen, but it wouldn't have happened tomorrow regardless.

patty59 01-09-2013 11:42 AM

looks good on him

KnightofBoston 01-09-2013 11:43 AM

Strange time to do it in my opinion

But hey, thanks for building our franchise Burkie!

Winnwell Cooperalls 01-09-2013 11:43 AM

Thanks Burke. Leafs board just imploded.

That's probably the reason, before he closed the deal.

Leaf fans are happy with the trade. And that's what counts ! Now let's send Brian Burke a thank you card. I wonder if hallmark has a "thanks for your time as gm" cards...

doubleminor138 01-09-2013 11:45 AM

Well, I surely have no hard feelings. But he screwed up Toronto's talent pool pretty good before they dumped him.

Wow. Yeah, that was my reaction. Seems like the Leafs made a decision to stick with him a decent while back, kinda weird they changed their minds at this moment. Maybe they now have someone in mind to move on?
