Kassian doesn't look 21 y/o at all. He looks late 20s.

Can't wait till Raymond gets to play on the 5th line

CoHo with 3 points in his last 17.
Had an FB friend who was ranting right after the trades about how obviously nobody in the Canucks organization ever wanted to win the cup and something about Pahlsson not being a replacement for CoHo and so on... I pointed out the Pahlsson acquisition had NOTHING to do with the CoHo trade and he just started ranting.

I wish I could show him the above stats... but he unfriended and blocked me after I called him a fucking moron

I really feel bad for leafs fans sometimes. The team hasn't made the playoffs in years. Traded for Kessel but gave up so much for him? Drafted players like Schenn and Kadri that has yet to prove their worth. Wilson got an extension before he got fired....

Basically after all that shit, they still go to the games. I give them props for doing so.

And he hung up on a radio interview this morning
Leafs GM Burke hangs up during Toronto radio interview

Quote:
Brian Burke's on-and-off relationship with the hockey media in Toronto continued on Tuesday as the Toronto Maple Leafs general manager took issue with the line of questioning from a Toronto radio host before abruptly hanging up in the midst of an interview.

Questioned about a variety of topics from his off-ice initiatives to the firing of head coach Ron Wilson, it was a question about Burke's own job security was the final straw. When host John Moore of Toronto's News Talk 1010 asked Burke he felt he was 'close to the door,' the NHL executive went on the defensive.

"I wish you'd told me before you asked me to do this interview that that was going to be your last question," Burke said. "A nice little cheap shot before you get off the air."

When Moore persisted and re-asked his question, Burke was short with his response. "No, I don't [worry about getting dismissed]," Burke said just moments before hanging up. "I think it's in ignorant question, and a gutless one, too."

It's not the first incident Burke has had with the hockey media since taking over in Toronto. Earlier this season, he criticized a reporter for getting injury updates from goaltender James Reimer's mother. Other columnists - including print and broadcast media - have on numerous occasions criticized the GM's interactions with the press.

Tuesday's interview started with talk about the 'You Can Play Project' (led by Burke's son Patrick) before switching to discussing on-ice issues - including a critique from hockey commentator Don Cherry about a lack of Ontario-born players on the Maple Leafs.

"I have no interest in escalating an argument with Don Cherry," said Burke. "And I don't know what set him off on that rant, because we actually have had a good relationship, historically."

"Let's look at a few facts. I've run three drafts here, and in those three drafts that I've been here, we led the league with eight Ontario-born players drafted... The notion that we don't like Ontario kids, that's garbage....Somehow in Canada, have we started differentiating between Western Canadians and Ontario boys or Quebec boys? Because I don't draw that distinction."

Burke also fielded questions about Wilson's dismissal by correcting misconceptions about their relationship.

"We've been friends for 40 years," Burke stated. "It's been incorrectly reported repeatedly that we were roommates in college. We were not. It's been reported, repeatedly incorrectly, that I hired Ron. I did not. But we've been friends... it was very difficult to fire him. But I'm also confident it was the right time and the right thing to do."

Haha what about the time when Burkie threatened to Lowe by challenging him to a barn fight.


However in this case, I do see Burkie's side. I know with almost all interviews, its agreed to before hand what topics will be discussed. It seems like Burke agreed to go on air to talk about this charity for his late son and got ambushed by the reporter.

I got my wish. The Boo-Ka-Ke line is playing against Dallas night. Dan Murphy of Sportsnet tweeted this message today:

Dan Murphy ‏ @sportsnetmurph

Yes, Raymond + Kassian switch lines RT @Snowsef52: any official word from coach V on the line combos tonight? Hoping Kassian starts with Kes.


-also heard that the Dallas backup goalie Bachman is playing tonight. Light him up Canucks!

Canucks looking to hold off surging Stars - sportsnet.ca

He has a stanley cup. That's one better than a lot of GM's.

For starters.

He also brought Vancouver back from the dead in the early 2000's.

IMO Burke gets a lot of flak for being such a publicly outspoken figure. When he took over the TML, their club was messed. Messed to a similar level as the Flames. I think the Leafs are headed in the right direction and have pieces in place for at least the next couple of years anyways to be able to make serious runs at the playoffs. Once you're in the playoffs, anything can happen.

If Burke didn't give Grabovski 5.5M/yr, somebody else would have on July 1. I think that's overpayment, but given what is on the market this summer to replace Grabovski, his hands were kind of tied. If they miss the playoffs this year, lose Grabovski to UFA and cannot replace him, then they will in all likelihood take another step back next season. Problem with this signing is it raises the bar for Kessel and Lupul, oh well, not our problem.

The Flames on the other hand seem to be wallowing in the same mould of just barely making/missing the playoffs, so not bad enough to get a great draft pick and not good enough be considered better than mediocre.

Re-signing Wilson despite all the TML fans wanting him gone, and then firing him a couple months later? Burke is stubborn and also hates realizing when he makes a stupid mistake. He's also notorious for shitty drafting and trading the future away.
