Nothing would be lost if Ovechkin didn't come back in my opinion.

If Ovechkin stays in the KHL, I can see Ribeiro having a terrible season.

Bit of a change...

Quote:
@TSNBobMcKenzie It's "expected" tho not official yet that the 10-game rule for called up juniors will become the six-game rule.

That is, team could play underage junior for 5 games without burning a year of his entry level contract. A 6th game, tho, would burn year.

He's only talking about this season. Next year it goes back to 10 games.

If, as expected, 6-game rule is adopted for underage juniors, it's just for this season. Would go back to 10 next year.

Toronto Maple Leafs have apparently fired Brian Burke as general manager. Working on official confirmations.
I assume they still have Nonis on staff.

Wild as guess, and total speculation on my part:

His hatred for cap busting contracts made him refuse to trade for Roberto Luongo. Ownership doesn't agree.

Still total speculation on my part, but Nonis did trade for Luongo once already. He brought him to Vancouver.

While Nonis isn't officially the replacement either, this would be the 2nd time Nonis has replaced Burke as a GM.

Maybe it really was Luongo.

Sounds like Burke did NOT want to make Luongo deal, while many in Leafs org did. Burke a principled man.

Sounds like no one at the BOG meeting had any clue this was about to happen.

If Luongo is the real reason here, then I want them to now make the trade and have it blow up hard in their faces.

Agreed.

I don't like using this guy as a source, but most media guys are not taking about why. They keep saying something "fishy" is going on or more will come out later.

Brian Burke kept trying to change the Roberto Luongo deal wonder if the new GM will move a little quicker. Canucks want 3 elements.

I actually feel kind of bad for Brian Burke. It sounds like he was taking a reasonable stand on the issue (why get gouged to pick up that horrible contract?) and the Leafs should actually be expected to be a decent playoff team this time around. Looks like he's on his way out just as things were looking up for Toronto.

Per McKenzie ... Nonis officially replaces Burkie for a 2nd time.

More ....

Not liking deal, Burke would not come close to matching Canucks requirements to move Luongo. Canucks adamant: They're not giving goalie away
You got have respect for the guy. He would have been a hypocrite to trade for that contract. His crusading is a huge reason those contracts were stopped in the new CBA.

What a crazy reason to fire someone. Toronto is truly a rudderless franchise.

I don't have any sympathy for Brian Burke though. All those resources behind him and he misses the playoffs 5 years in a row in a league defined by parity? How many GMs could survive that?

The chances of Luongo imploding in Toronto are also... shall we say, elevated.

Brian Burke??

Burke is not someone you just add to your organization and he sits quietly in meetings and gives input. Burke is going to run the show wherever he is. Having Joe's mentor looking over his shoulder and breathing down his neck would be a recipe for disaster. And Gainey is already here in that role.

Unbelieveable.

News spread like wildfire up here, I got texted three times in five minutes.

Pretty shocking news, and interesting timing to make such a major change!
