    Burkes moves or the lack of....

    It's getting to the point that it seems if we want anything worthwhile done with the Leafs , it would seem that we would have to wait until they kick Burkie out of office.

    Most of us Leaf fans couldn't wait to get Burkie here and see what he would do to turn this team around and get us back in the playoffs , but right now he seems more and more like JFJ everyday.

    What has happened to him , he was played up like the second coming and has done nothing to really get us anywhere close to the cup.

    Even when we've sucked we've had no rejoicing as most losing teams do with the thought of a first round choice to bring us out of the netherlands ,, hmm i guess we traded those away so that we can pick up some bodies now that can help us right away to get into the playoffs ,,,aak,, it seemed so much better even in the Ballard years than now in the Burkie years ,, if they miss out on the playoffs this year , the can better be tied to Burkie's ***.

    The only thing comparable in the Burke era to the Ballard era is the lack of success on the ice. Other than that it's a competely different situation. Harrold Ballard was an absolute nut bar with his own vengful agenda. He let his personal conflicts with people affect what happened on the ice. He ran some of the most talented players this franchise has ever had out of this city.

    I'm not a Burke fan, but outside of the on ice product it's not even comparable. People that didn't see much of that era don't get that.

    Burke is not comparable whatsoever to Ballard or JFJ. Do some of you think before you get on your soap box and rant garbage that's full of awful spelling and punctuation? As hard as it is to stick up for Burke, it's a hell of a lot harder to stick up for our fanbase.

    I can painstakingly read my way around spelling and punctuation. It's the content that's awful.

    Oh theres been plenty of **** falling from the sky in Leaf land. There are 2 types of people in here. Ones that are fed up with the outlook of the Leafs. And the ones who have blinders on to our current situation. I guess we know which categorie you're in.

    You forgot the rational thinker. You know the ones who dont have a bias against burke.

    I have backed Burke since he came here. I loved the Komi signing, when it happened....... not so much now. But Burke tried. i LIKED the Beauch signing, then he turnd it into Gardiner and Lups. I didnt like the Conolly signing, at all. But he got the 2nd best talent at centre, on the open FA market.
    We have approx 10 mil in cap space - be thankful Burke hasnt signed anyone for 7 mil per a season. FA is turning out to be a joke. Semin for 7..... what? Now Doan will sign for around the same...... the free agent signing period is a joke. Burke is doing a great job this summer, for not over paying.
    I love the JVR trade. Schenn was getting 12 mins a game, being paid 3.5 - no thanks. JVR was buried in Philly. He'll shine here!
    Burke will make a couple more moves, just relax till then. This is the summer of Burke. Hes gone if he doesnt do something.....

    I love when people say this. Not to pick on you, but its a ridiculous sentence. You realize that you are basically telling him he's doing a good job cause he hasn't ****ed anything up right? The only thing he's done is the Schenn trade which we won for sure but its the only thing he's done. You can't praise a guy because he hasn't ****ed anything up like he usually does...

    Name one key free agent that Burke has signed, who was a key contributor. Exactly - none. I believe it's a win win thus far. Free agents are being overpaid, which will hinder long term cap relief for most teams. Suter and will have over a 7 mil cap hit when theyre 40....... Kovy will have a 6.6 mil cap hit when he's 40. Not everyone will be a Nik lindstrom, and actually perform at an all star level when 40. Sure, they may retire but even to think about a 7 mil cap hit 12 yrs from now is scary.

    Two thumbs up for not over paying for free agents this summer. Especially since its a weak fa year. Even if Peter holland was our gm, a good off season is staying the course. Our farm is strong, we have our draft picks next yr. Burke is doing a great job. Not over paying on trades and I free agency.

    Does it make u feel adequate to point out a simple spelling mistake? A simple misunderstanding of a name, and a typo and you laugh? I feel sorry for people like you who get excitement and pleasure out of a simple mistake. I do not need a simple post nor do I need your approval to laugh at a simple mistake.

    You just justified what I tried to get across last night.
