I would not be surprised at all if the reason for Burke being fired has somewhat to do with the Luongo situation. My guess is that Burke refused to up his offer, putting the trade in jeopardy and ownership stepped in. The Leafs NEED Luongo. They NEED to make the playoffs. Burke's stubbornness most likely cost him his job. If Nonis takes over, as expected, I fully expect him to pay through the nose for Luongo.
