i wonder if this firing is over roberto louongo? my read is that burke wouldnt deal with vancouver because of his 'ego' history with the team... ownership probably gave him an ultimatum to make the deal since everyone and their cow can see that its the right move to make...

personally i think burke is a pretty darn good gm. vancouver and anaheim werent overnight success but he created/developed the foundation of pretty good teams there. i like the bones hes laid down in toronto too.

and i love his media relations

heres hoping he finds a high profile spot to land
