I don't think they have the talent this year to make the team but I think them missing the playoffs will be the perfect opportunity to fire Wilson. Then it conveniently buys Burke 2 more years.
Agreed, the quality of players on the ice far outweighs any decisions being made by a guy on the bench. The Leafs have a poor team, that isn't Ron Wilson's fault. Had he made the playoffs with that pathetic roster he would of been a Jack Adams candidate.
