Regarding calls for Ron Wilson's head in TO, just chatted with Leafs GM Brian Burke. ``I’m not contemplating a coaching change,’’ Burke said

Good to see Burke is onboard with getting a lottery pick in the draft

Even if he was, what is Burke going to do, tell the media before addressing it himself?

Burke would look like a gigantic horses ass coming across as incompetent himself, by extending his coach mid season for doing a good job, and then fire him 20 games later for doing a bad one.

So of course it not going to happen.

Maybe ownership is considering a GM change then.

Well, then I won't be surprised if we miss the playoffs.

Wilson HAS to go, his time is up, he doesn't have the heart to coach this team, nor the patience it seems like.

Im not being foul but he is the reason we are where we are and where we have been since him being hired.

He won't do it until the end of the season. Not really much point firing a coach with only 20 games left.

No point in getting rid of Wilson until the end of the season anyhow.

I'm a Burke supporter but if he doesn't get rid of Wilson I'm all for getting rid of both

Burke is such a buffoon! Where are the Assistant GMs? They need to pull off a coup and get rid of Burke! Wilson HAS to GO and FAST!

Normally those words from a GM are the kiss of death for a coach. In this case I actually believe Burke.

Does any one expect him to say " yes Ron has to go and I will tell him at Dinner tonight".

Or " now that you mentioned it, I think it is time for him to go"/

So even if the plan was to tie a can to his a** today he would not come out in the media and say anything until it was a done deal!

He is not Ron Wilson who constantly blames others ....a good GM supports his coach's until the bitter end in public. Same goes for a coach and his players.

What is said in the dressing room stays there....in public you support each other.

Yes, let's not bother trying to make the playoffs.


The young Leafs don't need any playoff experience this year or next.

Best move possible!! Burke is going ahead with tanking. This now confirms we are sellers.

Had to laugh at the thought of Nonis,Poulin and Dudley dressed up in Col. Qaddaffi uniforms driving the Leafs tank up to the ACC and deposing Burke.
