I wished that Stevie Y or Joey Nieuwendyk was the previous direction taken instead of a Burke-calibre GM.

Leafs under Nonis at least have a young exec today, but if I was looking outside I'd pursue Jim Nill from the Red Wings organization.
Stevie Y has done what exactly? Everyone is so high on Stevie Y, but I haven't seen any positives in Tampa Bay since he took over. Bungled the goaltending situation hard by getting rid of Mike Smith (Phoenix says thanks) and got lucky getting one good year out of Roloson. That sputtered out last year. Now he landed the "big fish" Anders Lindback, who has not proven anything in the NHL and has a history of health issues.

Add on to that the fact he hasn't figured out what to do with Lecavalier, and his defensive corps is one of the worst in the NHL... it's no small wonder he is the next coming of Christ to everyone...

I think it is well documented that he was a puppet during his tenure here. He's very respected for his scouting ability, and I think could have been successful had he been allowed to rebuild the team instead of push for post season year in and year out here.

On that point...i think the leafs need an accountant rather than a lawyer or a public figure. Someone who can accurately set a value on the assets the leafs have and can increase that value overall. Burke i think generally had a good idea of that (lupul/gardinder and toskala/Blake), but his miscalculations concerning the team quality when signing komi and trading for kessel were enormous blunders.

Think someone who puts an emphasis on young talent is necessary. Elcs will always be more efficient than ridiculous log term contracts. Don't sign top tier ufas.

Someone brought up rick dudley. From what i understand he at least has a similar view (or was forced to since he was working with a small market team in atl).

Edit: well now that the context of this post is gone...point is, baseball sabre ideas could be taken and applied in hockey terms

Of course they will there are only so many GM jobs out there. Plus these guys have huge egos they would come here because it is a tough to get job there are only 30 of them in the world - it pays really well - and their ego makes them believe they would succeed here whereas Burke failed here.
