What then do you suppose was the expectation upon his expensive hire, a 5, 7, 10 year re-build?. People here are talking like Draft Picks are going to live up to expectations. They almost never ever do.
Playing for the Leafs is a Privledge almost no other team can offer. Burke is not and never has been a guy with patience, a builder, a reno specialist adding a few pieces sure, but thats it.
Acquiring experience & reliability is job one, and if that means buyouts & trades, dumpings, then what the #%&* is he waiting for?. You want to build from the net out?. Sorry. This isnt 1967-68. His eye for netminding talent has always been flawed (Cloutier). Seriously out of touch approach to be taking since about 1989.
Gut it, go after the RFA's & UFA's this summer and hang on to but a few. His career & overblown rep depends on it.
