But then again, when you're finishing near the bottom of the conference for years, what's there to wait for?
Biggest problem for Burke: He came in with HUGE expectations and make promises on how the Leafs would rely on toughness and truculence to win but didn't deliver the goods. The Kessel trade didn't help either since Burke, at that point, decided to take the short road instead of the longer one which would have been the best option for Toronto.
