Wow. Out of nowhere. What an odd move. Who do they have in mind to replace him ?

This is weird. Also an odd time to fire him.

I am totally speculating here, but maybe MLHS wanted more of a 'yes man' and Burke wouldn't do what they wanted him to.

Loungo trade?

I'm far from a Brian Burke fan... but this is a really dumb move.

If they were going to fire him, it should've been 7 months ago.

Scraps was a bad choice of words. I guess it just reads like Tor is expecting a Phaneuf-type trade. Then again, Burke seems to pull those off quite a bit. My opinion is that a starter should be something along the lines of Biggs or a 1st as the starting point.. Call me crazy.

I saw that interview with Luongo at his home in Fla and he basically was saying all the right things while alluding to the fact he didn't want to be traded to Toronto.

I didn't see anything on their site. I'm sure he's on a short leash but is likely to be given this season.

Maybe because he wouldn't pay to acquire Luongo!

Wow. Wonder if Bell maybe has someone in mind?

Seems out of nowhere.....

Wonder if maybe they actually to keep building, and maybe Burke wanted to trade 1st rounder for Lou-and MLSE said no-therefore not giving Burke carte blanche?

It might also mean next GM they do get won't have carte blanche......pure speculation obviously.

LOL LOL LOL. My guess is Burke wouldn't pay the price for Luongo and Leafs' management canned him!
