I see what you did there.

Cope isn't going to just fire someone he doesn't see eye to eye with if the results are there, but there has been no progression in 4 years. Kadri was, what, 7th overall? Then the team would have the 2nd overall the next year, then the 10th, and when they can pick again, they're in the bottom five for standings again. Forget playoffs, would you continue to employ someone that had 4 years to show progression of some kind, but in the end actually regressed? 7 -> 2 -> 10 -> 5.

The timing was off, but between having 2 weeks between the ownership being finalized and the lockout, during which I don't think they could have fired Burke, and personality probably played a role in it, but Burke didn't improve the Leafs, he made them worse in his time there.
