Re: [Hockey] Official 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs Thread

Wasn't Burke let go due to the Luongo issue? That's what McCown was going on about anyway. He made an interesting point, though, that Burke has more star power than any of the players.

Should be interesting to see how this all pans out though. Looks like Rogers is hoping for some championships this year.

It's speculation... It could have been a tipping point, but everyone seems to agree that it was more about a personality conflict with the new owners.

But a potential refusal to deal for Luongo might have contributed to it.

I wonder if Burkie having more star power than Phaneuf, Kessel or Lupul is part of the problem, as shouldn't the "face of the franchise" be the star player and not the old guy with the untied tie? Compare TML to Pittsburgh (Crosby), Washington (Ovechkin), Ottawa (Alfredsson, but soon to be Spezza/Karlsson), Edmonton (Hall/Eberle/RNH), Philadelphia (Giroux et al).....it's supposed to be a player.
