Burke To The Maple Leafs Not A Done Deal...yet

Is Brian Burke the next GM and president of the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Yes, it would seem so.

Is the deal complete?

No, not quite yet.

"It's certainly headed in the right direction," Burke told TSN, "but it's not it done yet. I anticipate it will get done but it's not done."

Burke said he would have to stop just short of saying there is an "agreement in principle" with the Leafs because there are still some outstanding issues that he must negotiate and sign off on with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Richard Peddie.

Burke has in his possession a "term sheet" that outlines many of the terms and conditions that would be contained in the contract - the number of years (six); the salary (about $3 million), signing and performance bonuses - but has not yet seen a draft version of the contract itself. And Burke said there are still a few other items not contained in the "term sheet" that need to be clarified and settled before the contract can be drafted.

Burke said he didn't anticipate doing anything today that would further the process.

If whatever outstanding issues that remain are cleared up this week, the earliest the Leafs are expected to announce him as the new president and GM is on Saturday.

It's pretty much a done deal. Interested to see what he does. I assume the Leafs will be a much tougher, grittier team under Burke.
