Before Burke took over the Leafs at least were usually close to a playoff spot. Then he mortgaged his future on Kessel and things went downhill from there.

Sure they're good now but perhaps they wouldn't be if they didn't fire him before the season started. People seem to think a change in GM makes the team better, so perhaps that was the case there?
