I know a lot of you guys hate the Leafs and hate Burke but make no mistake Burke has totally turned this franchise around when it comes to futures. He left Nonis with a clean slate. We have a ton of cap space coming up after next season and he's re-charged the farm system.
I totally agree.

Burke was far from perfect, but Toronto has some very solid pieces moving forward.
