Im not so sure. Due to the fact no one watches the marlies, they dont really know a lot about eakins. I just watched a game where the marlies gave up a 3-0 lead. If that were wilson, people would be calling for his head, but no one ever knows about eakins' more disappointing moments. They just know about the final score.

However if ronnie cant get this team in the playoffs, it cant hurt to try.

I only say this because it's not like a substantial amount of progress can still be done in that amount of time or anything.

You're welcome.
Burke won't ever be able to prove it, having unlimited money and x gm assistants. He'll never be able to show how he could build a 106 point team without all the money in the world to help bury his mistakes.

Well Marlies arent going to be winning every single games and finish 82-0-0, stuff happens. I am not following Marlies that much but have heard he is doing an execellent job. Overall they are first place so he must be doing something right.

well fortunately for him he cant even overpay for UFAs even if he wanted to because he cant afford them, so dont expect too many more disaster UFA signing from him.

What are you trying to prove :S, Its not as if Polie has any choice in the matter, He has to spend less. If he has a choice to bury lombardi contract in the minor he would do that in a hearbeat but he cant afford to so he had to bribe Burk with Franson

That's right he gave them no movement clauses, but he still has the luxury of spending to the cap and hiring practically every out of work GM as his assistant.

C'mon you said the Leafs were stuck with it. Anyway Burke again showing he can get some guys buy spending. A luxury Poile doesn't have, he has to build on a shoestring and is doing a terrific job. Then we have Burke spending left tright and Centre and still not looking to make the playoffs.

That's mostly because the Marlies don't play 82 games

The 2 things that you really got from this interview, is one Leafs have not made an offer for Nash and Wilson's future with the Leafs is not on strong footing, especially if he misses the playoffs.

Lombardi was on LTIR. Burying the contract is moot. His contract was uninsured, so Nashville was on the hook. I highly doubt Burke was "bribed", as much as he was opportunistic by demanding Franson.

I still think he missed putting Lombardi on the Crosby fitness and reconditioning long path to recovery. The LTIR cap saving would be in handy as well as the extra roster spot for call up

Man these interviewers are terrible to listen to. They think they're all candid, but they come across as very arrogant.
