If true, this seems like a really odd time to fire a GM.

EDIT: Apparently it is true. This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Why fire him now? The season is just about to start.

Congratulations Toronto. You always seem to come up with new ways to baffle the hockey world.

An older article: http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/NHL/Toronto/2012/06/05/19841851.html

Many within the Maple Leafs hockey hierarchy have been asked about Burke's status over the past few months and they claim to know nothing of it. There was a story going around that Burke had already taken a leave of absence. He didn't. There was a story going around that he was about to be fired. It hasn't happened -- and isn't about to happen.

Wow, not the best time to do it. If they were to fire him, they should have did it when the season ended last year.

NONUTZZZZZZZZZZZZ is probably taking over.

It is, but if Dave Nonis is going to replace him as general manager it shouldn't be a problem.

curious. Wonder if this puts a damper on TO making a run on Getzlaf/Perry next summer. From what I heard they loved Burke.

The timing is so odd. This *has* to have something to do with Luongo deal. Why timing just before CBA is signed?
