Burke definitely knows his stuff and is probably one of the best GM's we have ever had, he will make trades, that will benefit the team and upgrade the talent level.

Someone asked if he is trading for Staal...he said, "We are never allowed to discuss players under contract to another organization in terms of interest. That constitutes tampering."

Burke said he is always looking to upgrade the team through trades etc. 24/7 However the 29 other GMs arent reasonable....lol

Will probably be the only time he's going to do this after he sees the true level of hockey IQ out of some people out there.

I can't say, I would blame Burke either.

Someone ask: Leafs lose 9 of 13 and you hand the coach a contract extension? He has done little to improve the team the past 4 years, and your hand picked(Stanley cup winning) coach is out there waiting for a job. Why haven't you hired him yet?

Has anyone yet asked.

Why is your personal relationship with Ron Wilson influencing your decision making process with regards to team direction, despite having a laundry list of facts which suggest the Maple Leafs are amongst the worst defensive teams in the NHL; all whilst bolstering one of the best Defensive lineups on paper?

I will answer my own question...His response will be that we have had shaky goal-tending.

Should have asked who he thinks is responsible for having consistently the worst pk in the league for 4 years straight.

Komisarek, Schenn, Phaneuf, Liles, Gunnarson, Franson, Gardiner

Pal, that is a powerful D if played correctly, you must be the kind of person that attributes everything unto the player. You completely ignore the fact that the system they play is DOCUMENTED AND KNOWN to be defensively HAPHAZARD.

I get it, you want... Lidstrom, Lidstrom, Lidstrom, Lidstrom, Lidstrom, Lidstrom ...The cloning facilities are working on it just for you.

So you think we are weak defensively is what you are saying. You are saying the players on Toronto suck and that is why we are suffering.

I see
