Burke was all in - willing to trade 1sts/top prospects to get him - to win now.
BOG stepped in and said enough is enough - had to fire him immediately to prevent the continued destruciton of franchise.
Why do you keep saying this. If this is true t would had happened. Burke had ample time to do the deal with Van to overpay for Toronto. A more likely scenario would be that Burke was unwilling to overpay, whiled management wanted to get it done at all cost, thus being fired to facilitated that by promoting they guy who has previously traded for Luongo.
