Watch last years draft and they alluded that other GM's are having a good time watching Burke squirm.

I don't read Steve Simmons. I have watched the Leafs for over forty years, I make my own judgments. When you have watched that long give me a ring.

I don't make profound statements to the media, I don't even do that with my significant other unless I know I can follow through with it. Burke has done it from day one, from his first press conference to his last statement. All smoke but nothing to back it up. You think differently......than you are a naive individual.

He made a good deal with Ana, hell of players in Lupul an Gardiner.....Phaneuf is not bad for spare parts but where has the captain been all year? Where was he last night? Wow! That was such a great deal wasn't it?! Set us up to be contenders forever.....God some of you are blind.

Let's talk about the UFA signings he has made or throwing two first and a second, one which is a lottery pic at a perimeter player that will never be a franchise player.

Maybe. I'm sure the GM that put all the pieces there before he arrived had a lot to do with that but perhaps you don't know that. Who was the person that drafted Getzlaf, Perry, Gigurre signed Rob Niedermeyer and the whole cast of others. Burke brought Pronger, good on him. Rob talked Scott to play there, it was a dream the two shared to play together. Maybe if you been watching the Leafs backwards moves for the last few decades you might think differently.
