Then when Allaire decides that the criticism is too much to handle he decides to leave and takes a shot by saying "I don't think the Leafs need a goalie coach, they have 2-3 already" (paraphrasing).
I'd have slung mud back too.
You can hate Brian Burke for a lot of things but he always has the back of his players and management.
Burke on Allaire in March: "I think we have the best goalie coach on the planet."
Burke on Allaire in Sept: "Allaireís approach with his goalies hadnít altered even though rule changes meant his insistence on the butterfly technique wasnít working."
Burke doesn't do himself any favours.
