It's all speculation, but there's a school of thought that Burke has consistently been against these long term, cap circumvention contracts. So while he might like Luongo, the contract was a sticking point and the Leafs fans felt he wouldn't offer that much for Luongo because of that.

I'll be surprised if that's all there is to this firing though. Has to be more than that..doesn't there?
