Said he mis-used him in Anaheim and that he's a top 6 forward. Also said what happened in Anaheim is water under the bridge.

Didn't like the comment he may get his shot with another team.

He made a mistake in not allowing him on LW in top 6 but he was coming off possible career-ending back surgery. They talked. Water under the bridge.

Dave Ferris (sp?) brought on as Assistant Coach. Zetter reassigned.

I'm praying and praying no one takes him in the next three years.

And I'm not even religious.

Burke's not stupid. He's not blaming the fans for running Ronnie out of town.

I'm not thrilled about it but it's realistic. Carlyle is under contract for over 3 seasons now and no matter how badly things go, you gotta think he gets this season and next at the very least.

It's a very real possiiblity that Eakins is approached before then and Burke wouldn't block Eakins, I wouldn't think. The brightside is that I'm hoping we'll have no need to bring Eakins in because Carlyle is a success.

He doesn't fight the fan, and realized after the ACC on tuesday he realized they were strong on their feet, and didn't want to put wilson through it again, and clear to him the team wasn't listening to him.

In so many words he basically admitted that he was wrong not to use him on the LW in Anaheim, it was a mistake to give up on him in Anaheim as he's having a career year now, and he's spoken to Lupul and it's water under the bridge.

He admits Ron didn't like a rough team, Burke does, there was a slight difference of opinion.

Dave Farrish is like having a 2nd coach on the Leafs, he will be a great add. Ex Leaf D man for those old enough to remember.

"I like it a little rougher than Ron does."

Cringe worthy unintended double entendre.
