I don't know whats even more baffling is that Carlyle is the coach, the man Burke hired so this is just getting absurd.

My thoughts exactly. I think this is a bad move in the first place, but the timing makes absolutely no sense. He must have done something bad behind the scenes but what?

Either Rog/Bell doesn't want Lu or Burke wouldn't get Lu..... HAS to be a legit issue. OR something personal happened..... The timing is too wtf.

Agreed.

The way it happens also makes the Leafs look like fools.

The team was getting better. The Leafs have a great prospect pool and are going to be a playoff team soon. I wonder what happened? Did he piss someone in upper management off?

Pray for Rielly and our 1st folks. Hope that ownership doesnt do something rash.

On a side note.....how the **** does Colangelo keep his job while Burke gets the axe?

Well, time to tank I suppose.

This is the worst timing EVER. I am so shocked. I thought it was a joke.

The Maple Leafs let Burke represent them in CBA negotiations, then canned him after they were done. Get these guys a clown car.

It's the TSN 990 Radio show topic in Montreal right now. Speculation on the show, is the Luongo issue might have clinched it.

What the hell was that all about. Good job Rogers and Bell no clue how to run a hockey team.

I hope the Rogers now gets screwed by the Jays having a horrible season...KARMA KARMA.

This better not be MLSE wanting to go for the playoffs now, sacrificing the future Burke built up

This could be just a rumor even if hockey analysts say it's true. Okay well mabye not. This better benefit the TML. If firing Burke is what needs to happen than so be it.

This has me scared. I really, really, do not want an interfering ownership group. Burke had control and I liked that.
