Of course they can't. It's Doug Maclean.

So, if accurate, was Burke the Leafs GM at the time?

LOL if true. Even if it wasn't Kadri going the other way, it's still awful. The Leafs are trying to get out of the temptation to added bloated contracts to their roster, aren't they? Geez...

Is it not "ignant" to be disappointed he isn't gone; without knowing the details either?

If you deleted the hypocritical posts from these forums; there would probably be 2 posts left; both of which would feature emoticons only.
This doesn't make any sense.

Anyone think that a guy like Luongo might actually want to get bought out?
He'd make a killing.

Then he could go sign a 5-year, $25 M deal somewhere else.

I think this story is complete BS. Why on earth would the Leafs offer their best center and center prospect when they already are short on center depth for a goalie they may or may not have needed at the time? Not to mention the massive cloud over everyone's head...the CBA.

Whis whole thing stinks of fabrication. Look at the timing of it...so convenient.

Exactly. The only stories that were floating in the summer was that the Leafs were offering X and Vancouver wanted XY and Z. And even those were completely unverified speculation from all the media pundits.

Until I hear it quoted from Luongo, Gillis, Nonis or Burke I simply have a hard time seeing how this is reputable. Nothing about that article is convincing.

What do you want the guy to do?

The owner got Gillis to make the contract with Luongo despite Gillis advising him not to. To fire Gillis over that would be ridiculous.

Gillis also managed to get a pretty good deal for Lu if it wasn't someone from Florida telling him that they were going to get a deal done, which made Lu veto the deal to Toronto.

The only issue I have with Gillis is that he hasn't managed to get us a good replacement for Kesler but its not really his fault that his entire 2nd line has been injured for most of the season...yet we still might win our division.

An article discussing something that happened last summer doesn't have much to do with what's happening now. Given the path recent discussions involving Luongo to the Leafs have taken on this board, I'm shutting this down until there's actually something new to discuss relevant to this deadline.
