And I bet Frattin, Bozak and the 2nd are the names leaked by others in MLSE?

Even if you wanted this to happen, it's a stupid decision to do it NOW. What's with this organization and allowing GMs to go through a whole off-season before firing/replacing them?

Yeah. The timing is wrong. I've been very critical of Burke, but this is just brutal timing.

What? I think you can make a case Burke hasn't done a great job but the fact Ferguson Jr was given more time than Burke makes this a head scratcher. The Leafs are clown organization.

First reaction: Odds that a Brian Burke firing has anything to do with a difference of opinion on acquiring Roberto Luongo?
If this is true then some will get their wish of having meddling ownership.

There is a lot of questions that keep running through my head, and there has to be more to this story

Why would Nonis take over? He was a part of this sad regime.

I guess with the new ownership it was expected but I didn't think it would happen before the start of the year. Burke made some mistakes but he also did a lot of things right.

I guess no trades with Anaheim now.



Oh, and Bryan Colangelo gets to keep his job! You have to think he's next!

Guarantee Burke will be picked up in the next week by another team, and of course, that team will win the cup in the next 3 years.

The sale of MLSE to Rogers/Bell didn't happen until last June, and a few months later they were in a lockout. I guess now that things are rolling again they felt they had enough time to make their decision before more damage was done.
