How many GMs get fired with term on their contracts? Burke had 2 years left on his deal when he was fired. And he's not the only one. The average lifespan for a GM in the NHL is less than 5 years - how many of them get fired with term on their deals?

You're suggesting that it's absurd that a GM gets fired with term on his contract (which has actually happened many times in the past), and equating that to a player retiring to become an astronaut (which has never happened in the history of the game). Maybe if you're comparisons weren't so absurd, it'd make more sense?
*rolls eyes*

Okay so me a newly appointed GM who's been fired only after 48 games and after signing an extension?
