Leafs fire Burke

@TSNBobMcKenzie: Toronto Maple Leafs have apparently fired Brian Burke as general manager. Working on official confirmations.

I almost feel bad for them now, shoulda happened 3 years ago. Guy set them back years in their rebuild and somehow managed to stick around when Wilson got fired....

He'll be out of a job for 5 seconds.

But thank you BURKE! He rebuilt our franchise more than he rebuilt Toronto's

Did the Leaf's owner just find out what the Bruins received in the trade for Kessel ? LOL

Can't happen until the MOU is ratified and that's not happening until Saturday, so there is some falsity to that rumour. Could still happen, but it wouldn't have happened tomorrow regardless.

That's probably the reason, before he closed the deal.

Leaf fans are happy with the trade. And that's what counts ! Now let's send Brian Burke a thank you card. I wonder if hallmark has a "thanks for your time as gm" cards...

Well, I surely have no hard feelings. But he screwed up Toronto's talent pool pretty good before they dumped him.

Wow. Yeah, that was my reaction. Seems like the Leafs made a decision to stick with him a decent while back, kinda weird they changed their minds at this moment. Maybe they now have someone in mind to move on?
