ofcourse i meant to say "digress".........reading through this site is making me stupid.
I think a major problem with the Leafs organization is the fans.See Chicago Cubs
. perhaps Leafs could with the right front office... it defintiely could begin with ditching Burke.. he had a few years to start, but it seems he is no farther ahead. A fresh face to the NHL and the team might be what they need.Yeah, they need a complete systemic purge. Everyone has to go. No dinosaurs in there, time to hire geeks and professionals to hire tangible talent. The time to bring in a Burke-type is after the organizational infrastructure has been ripped apart and put back together properly with professionals and professinal systems instead of the good ol' boy club thing so many front offices have.
He's already got a cup, and I don't think he wants to start at the bottom.True, I was implying that he'll run himself out of the spot he's in soon enough. The market will dry up and he'll run out of opportunities soon enough.
They need to get this season going so we can all come back here and smack talk eachother. The new baby has been keeping me occupied, but I need to see some hockey, lol. The old playoff games on the NHL network just aren't cutting it anymore.
Cheers guys, can't wait to get back into it with all of you.
