Sports is results oriented business, and the poor results speak for themselves.

A GM is evaluated on performance of his team, not the individual transactions to get there. Fans point to Marlies and other non NHLers as Burke's successes among his failures, but unless they impact the Leafs in the NHL standings they mean little to the organization overall or MLSE.

When Burke is fired, if he doesn't start showing tangible Leaf team improvements in the near future, not all Leaf fans will be surprised by his dismissal. Some even can see it coming already.
