Who else feels he would be the logical choice after Wilson? Some NHL teams have hired their AHL coaches with mixed results. I'm impressed with how he handles young players down in the Marlies. He seems like he would get tons of respect in the Maple Leafs dressing room, as he seem to be a 'Player's Coach'.

I realize however the level is much different in the two leagues. But I wouldn't be upset if Burke hires this guy.
They retained him despite firing Paul Maurice and Randy Ladoucoure so they obviously saw something in him. He seems to have a solid knowledge of the game. I'm all for promoting from within, but Scott Gordon is my first choice.
