Does he have both then? So he could play for either? I think if USA offered him a spot he'd take it. (Highly doubt he even contends for Canada)

Maybe you should sit back and enjoy the games , the teams playing hard and Reims has been excellent .

To be honest i think firing Burke has been the key to the teams improved play this season . The loud mouth arrogant retard was a distraction and without him the players have been allowed to concentrate on the game without the blowhards constant yapping .

Why don't you ask yourself why people are making threads about him? He was at a hockey game. Big deal.

What the hell? It's a free country and he still works for the team and he's there scouting. He didn't report he was going to be there, sportsnet did. Odd post.

Who do you really see JVR knocking out of that line-up?? And there's a slew of others I've left out.
I think Stastny still makes the team over Stepan, we need more playmakers and even though Stastny hasn't been the same he still has the ability and played great in the last WC for USA.

JVR's best chance to make the team would be over Oshie or Pominville, since the players on your top two lines are locks and the Brown - Backes - Callahan line is going to be together for sure as the checking line. I'm a Sabres fan so I obviously think Pominville should be in Sochi 100% 30 goal scorer with a great defensive game and is always in the tops amongst US point getters, but if JVR continues to impress he could make it over Oshie, though I wouldn't put money on it.

And to top things off..we are 13 games into the season...all ready we are thanking Brian Burke for the juggernaut that he assembled. Please. As I recall..the Leafs had a better record comig outta the gate last year.

Now, not to say I don't appreciate the effort this team has shown this year because they have played well...but Reimer has to me been the difference this season. Playing like a real #1. Like I thought he would.....Also give Carlyle some credit for actually coaching...his team looks prepared for games not like that Burke idiot sidekick...Ron Wilson...couple of arrogant pr1cks....good riddance.

I feel like the IIHF has some rule on what team you can play for, based on what teams you have played for in the past. Could be wrong.

You're right RC does deserve alot of the credit . Rotten Ronnie hung our goalies out to dry with his run and gun system .

I'll at least give Wilson credit for disappearing after he was fired unlike Burke who for some reason is still trying to cling to this team .

Leafs big win has Burke’s handprints all over it

The man who was sitting in Seat 90 of the Foster Hewitt Media Gondola at the Air Canada Centre on Monday was not ducking the media but neither was he searching for notepads or cameras, either. The Senior Advisor To Everybody at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd. but Dave Nonis was representing USA Hockey, folks, but there surely must have been some degree of satisfaction for him in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers – Toronto’s first victory over Philly in six games, and its second win in six home games.

JFJ might have drafted them but Burke sifted through the good and bad and SIGNED all of them! Had JFJ drafted and signed them then YES he would deserve more credit.

Burke gave them their chance

Are you kidding man? JFJ traded Tuuka Rask for Andrew Raycroft... Do you know how bad of a trade that was? He made some decent draft choices that are just starting to come through but damn he was an awful, awful GM. The top line when he left after 3 years was Blake-Stajan-Ponikoroski, no prospects, no talent, no depth. Burke had nothing but a steaming pile of crap to start with.

THIS! I mean holy ****, JFJ wasn't a great GM and made ****** trades, but let's give him some credit here. Some of the key players that we have who are stepping up right now are JFJ's players.

And for the Eakins lovers, it was JFJ who brought him in initially. The guy who has helped these players develop..

Fire Nonis and Re Hire Burke!!!

We're not saying JFJ was a good GM...we're just giving credit where credit is due and it's for those list of players that are making a current impact on our team.

You don't have to remind us what JFJ did, we all remember.

No offense but I HATE that argument. Nucks fans use it when they try to defend Gillis. No way, that Nucks team is built mostly by Burke/Nonis and this Leafs team is a mix of JFJ/Fletch/Burke.

But the players who are producing like Frattin and Reimer are Fergie picks.
