Agreed, he took a lot of heat for other bad deals and probably didn't want to sell the farm for Lou.

MLSE thought otherwise and wants Lou.

My thinking is that he didn't want to trade for Luongo, due to his contract and possibly other concerns. Goaltending is the teams obvious weakness and I'm fairly sure Burke and the ownership had entirely different feelings on the matter, so they fired him.
