Beyond comprehension.

But there were many, many, many little sycophants around who shrieked to high heaven whenever the failure Burke and his boy Wilson were criticized.

Think of how Burke orchestrated that monumental collapse last season with his moronic insistence on keeping Wilson in charge.

How could anyone think the best way to develop someone like Kadri is to mock him in public the way Wilson did?
While they both made mistakes, in retrospect they both didn't have a lot to work with.

Leafs never had a decent enough keeper to take them into the playoffs.

The team also lacked in a lot of areas.

I'll give some credit though to Burke for re-stocking a nearly empty prospectus cupboard.

And somehow finding a way to ship Jason Blake out of town, which was thought of as nearly impossible.
