I really hope that's true, although it seems like the opposite makes more sense. I will say that I believe this decision involves Luongo in some way IMO.

Nope it's the opposite.

Why would he trade guy's he's aquired like Kadri, Gardiner etc...

You got it backwards dude. Not sure if you're being sarcastic or something.

If Luongo is part of the issue, it is the other way around.

So we can expect the playoffs but no rebuild. Still better than no playoffs and no rebuild.

Nonis looks like a dead man walking. This is going to be a rough transition period for Leafs fans.

I have a hard time believing Burke wanted to go all in again after the Kessel trade.
Yeah its entirely possible - but he used the Keyword "Patience" on multiple occasions during presser. Trading for Luongo is not being patient. Especially at that asking price.

Nonis: "I am more patient than Brian was"

Seems pretty evident to me after listening.

Kypreos says no matter what Anselmi says or what you heard, this has a lot to do with Luongo. They are still in the hunt for him.

honestly, the leaf franchise is such a joke right now, the fans need something to rally around.

trust me when i say this, after his first massive save with Houston on the call, you guys will be falling over each other in love with lu..

Interesting that Nonis made a point of mentioning how certain players don't fit in to a more tight-checking, defensive style.

We'll all know soon enough the direction this team will be going in once this Luongo situation is finally cleared.

Of course they are. No other team is really.. It's just silly to fire an executive over a player. Doesn't make sense.

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.
