I've always said Burke is extremely overrated and not that good of a GM but firing him like that is bush league. It must be unsettling to be a Leafs fan right now.

As for his legacy? Outside the mistake that was the Kessel trade he at least shifted the mentality of the Leafs from ''overrated old fart's club'' to ''young team'' which is good in itself. My guess is that Burke seriously considered tanking next season to get MacKinnon or Jones and the idea was denied.
