I feel like I had a couple minutes stolen from me in reading that artical and this thread.
The Leafs are not too worried about the Blue Jays or the Argos. Over the years there have been Grey Cups and World Series and never has it hurt the Leafs, now suddenly it might ?
Burke was hired to build a team that will compete long term, that means setting a foundation in place and building on that. Why would this suddenly change ?
If the new ownership group have suddenly decided they need to win now (which is possible) then maybe they have met with Burke and told him to end the retool/rebuild and start trying to win now, but until we know this for a fact assumptions Burke is under pressure for immediate results are mere speculation.
Assuming the folks at Rogers/Bell are smarter than the average HF poster Burke can point to the LA Kings and say, that is what I am trying to do. THey will probably see that a rebuild does not happen in three years and leave him alone.
