That's what I'm thinking.

Nobody is safe anymore.

Or maybe ownership wants to tank?

This. He hasn't reached the end result as quickly as I would have liked, but he had 100% control over what he was doing. Very strange indeed. Something smells.

In other news. Alex Anthopolous has been named General Manager.

Bring in a new guy now to right the ship and get accustomed to things before the offseason. It's not like many moves can be made now on a shortened season.
Except it won't be 'a new guy'. It will be Nonis. He will continue what Burke has done, only worse.

The timing of this suggests it was a reactionary move by ownership...ie, they tried to intervene and he said "my way or the highway" and they said highway.

Really don't like this.

Exactly. This could be bad. Could not be bad... but could be bad.

I wonder if we're entering another time of organizational in-fighting like in the mid-1990's.

I would guess that Burke and the new ownership didn't see things eye to eye. But why one earth would the Leafs leave it until now?
