With that out of the way, this is a performance business. Burke failed to perform and he did so in the biggest hockey market in the world. He's been in his post one year less than Howson. Has a payroll less than Howson's. Came closer to the playoffs last year than Howson.
So, if it is just and right that Burke be fired, it would seem it is more than just that Howson suffer the same fate. But, we do not live in a just world.
...and he was also provided with limitless resources, and the ability to say, "Hey, UFA, didn't you grow up a Leafs fan? Don't you want to be closer to family so they can see you play? Don't you want to play in front of sellout crowds, and never have to buy a meal or drink anywhere you go in the city?"
