Usually GM is fired or extended before becoming lame duck. It can become a major conflict of interest to have a GM with only a year left on deal for obvious reasons. Burke needs to show progress to get extension vis a vis in a shortened season every game has a much heftier value attached to it when Burke is weighing costs and benefits in regards to Leafs asset management.
