Right now, the status quo should remain.
Not really.

How many coaches have Dean Lombardi and Bryan Murray been able to gas and they've still kept their jobs, And BB has accomplish more than either them.

This extension is nothing more than a media diversion IMO. If we manage to miss the playoffs agian Wilson will be gone no doubt. From Burke's end, Why would he use one of his 'bullets' so to say by firing a coach who has the team in 6th at Christmas.

I'm not sure myself, but, I'm pissed that Wilson was given something I feel he does not deserve. I feel he has not achieved enough over his time with the Leafs.
Poor guy, you didn't feel that Wilson should have been extended. How could Burke do that to you, of all people.

Leaf fans are pretty trash to jump on a poster for stating his opinion as nice as this guy did. He didn't go off and call Wilson an idiot, least treat the guy with some respect before you call him a kid, childish, etc. most of you don't know **** about hockey anyway.

But as for the question: No. Burke has been one of our better GM's and during his reign of terror and his trading skills are on par with that of Glen Sather while his scouting staff has done great work in getting promising prospects. But OP has a point, after being first in the NHL for however brief the Leafs have gone on a landslide and currently under .500 with a 4-4-2 record for december.
