All the excuses in the World can't cover up what the NHL standings exposes for all to see. One didn't need to be clairvoyant to recognize the end was near, based on the dismal on-ice performance on an annual basis.

Intangibles like the belief that a GM is building up the prospect pool, only to find out the latest Hockey News (professional NHL scouts blended opinions) place the Leaf organization at 25th overall from the Burke draft/trade years 2009-2012, paint a very different picture of the situation.
And the standings in 2013 paint a different picture than the one you are painting here.

We're doing it missing our #1 goalie and 2 of our top 4 wingers.

Is it the coach?

Well Burke hired the guy.

It takes some serious blinders to say the team is not in better shape thanks to Brian Burke.
