If I was Burke, from a hockey & GM standpoint, I would have probably kept him as well because the other options were not that much better for a losing squad. But I almost guarantee he doesn't get extended unless he makes the playoffs this year.

Leafs only improving to 9thish place is Burke's fault but it will be the perfect time to use RW as the scapegoat and make your first coaching change.
Well this is Ronnie's last chance to see if he can perform well, ever since he coached the numbers on the pp and pk have been always in the bottom 10. This year Burkie fired those long time assistant coaches and replaced them with new ones. If Wilson fails at making the playoffs he's done.
