Florida is still very well in the mix as is Philly.
I agree with Florida, but not so sure about Philly unless it gets to the offseason and they waive Bryz. That's a big stretch.
TO's Sportsnet Cox's view
While I'd agree that Nonis may have less pressure with Burke already having been fired, I doubt that Burke was likely to cave to any pressure to being with. Despite that, the Leafs were interested, so I think they'll still be interested now. As always, the question is price.
Certainly, others have already made the point that for Toronto to keep looking to the future when they have the longest current playoff appearance drought is not a good move. At some point they'll have to mortgage a bit of their future for some success now. Bad moves in the past should prevent them from looking for a deal now, but it should prevent them from overpaying.
Man, would I have loved to be on the Bruins end of that Kessel trade. Burke really screwed up on his evaluation for that one, but once burned, twice shy.
