Leafs fans need to engage in some reverse psychology. Hold a huge rally insisting that Wilson be extended for another decade. Rain abuse on Burke on call-in shows, stating that he is not giving Wilson enough support.

Wilson would be gone in a week.
I don't know if you're joking, but if you're not, I agree. I can't see Wilson getting fired if there is public pressure to fire him because then Burke will be viewed as caving in to pressure.

Anyone worried about that?
Burke: Wilson is the coach we're going to have behind the bench. Is that the coach you want?

Murray: Yes

Burke: Well, we're going to extend him.

Murray: OK
