BTW I hope that Luon8o deal is true because as expected the Nucks got jack**** in return for him. Although I will so miss his annual playoff blowups!
With all the pressure in Toronto, he might start having regular season blow ups.

True. All I know is that they are still VERY sensitive over there. I went on their boards simply to read the updates on Kovie, and in that particular thread, one fan started in on how Lou needs to file tampering charges against the Wild. That opened the can of worms to which everyone else agreed.

The wound is extremely fresh still. I wouldn't dare post over there for 2-3 years at the earliest.

Tsn has the schedule up, don't know if it's legit or not. Might just be the original planned schedule.

Its got interconference games. That leads me to believe it's the original schedule truncated to start on the 15th.

You forgot Phoenix. And yes, I wish Phoenix would move. I wish the Jets had never gone there. And I will forever hate it that Phoenix has a hockey team. I'm with the North Stars fans on this one. Screw Dallas.

So the Toronto Maple Leafs have allegedly fired Brian Burke which if true would be one from the left field.

I actually think he's a good GM. He seems to rip off most teams in trades (sans the Kessel trade), and I give him credit for sticking to his guns on a lot of issues.

Just really odd timing, right after he brings in a coach that's a close friend, wow.

Why the hell would you fire him right now? Why, just over a week before the season starts, a few days before training camp starts, would you fire him NOW?!?!?! WTF!?!?!? What the hell is going on in Toronto? I have to think that this is somehow Luongo related. Either Burke wasn't willing to trade for Luongo but ownership was, or maybe Burke was going to go full ****** and give up way too much in a deal for Luongo and pissed off ownership.

Never been a big fan of Burke, but my guess is that he'll get another GM job somewhere soon.

So either this is completely related to the Luongo trade, or Burke did something very, very stupid completely unrelated to hockey. Anyone want to start placing bets?

The ownership prolly wanted to go all in to get LOLongo but Burke didn't. My guess.

Could this have anything to do with tampering? It seems a little far fetched, but thoughts?

Burke fancied him some hookers! They found pictures of him in a limo naked.

Very strange. It has to be something that has come up very suddenly. The timing is awful for it to be performance/result related.

I'd say, if there was a good time to move on from a GM, this would be the perfect time to do it. Much less work to be done right now as opposed to the offseason.
