I hate how the media in Vancouver keep on saying "Lu will be traded soon". Such a fucking distraction.

I really want to know the rationale for this. Does it have to do with the higher ups wanting Luongo, or Burke not wanting to move certain pieces, something personal? This is interesting as shit.

#NHL news: Source saying #Canucks Luongo still very much in the hunt to become a #Leaf despite GM Burke relieved of his duties.
Speculation rampant that Leafs ownership and Burke had a fundamental disagreement on obtaining Lu, if what Kyper says is true, maybe MLSE wanted Lu and whatever costs as Leafs in playoffs now equals dollars in their pockets and Burke was being hardline on what he was willing to give up for Lu.

Do they have a next-in-line for GM? Is Dave Nonis still in TO's system?

How crazy would it be if Nonis becomes acting GM. The same guy that traded for Luongo to become a Canuck trades for him to become a Leaf.

Sounds like Burke did NOT want to make Luongo deal, while many in Leafs org did. Burke a principled man.

So I guess this means Gillis will get whatever he wants for Lu? If not more?

Oh man, being in Toronto is too funny sometimes.
besides getting chirped daily since the lockout ended about how the Canucks are going to suck this year, everyone at school is going nuts about Burke.

It's actually really entertaining. the culture out here is way different from Vancouver. a lot of passionate fans. I envy that.

LOL at Jay Onrait

Jay Onrait @JayOnrait
I think more Canadian sports media people would be chirping new MLSE owners for Burke firing if they didn't all work for those same owners.

A shocking move by the Leafs to fire Burke right after the lockout ended.

-heard that even some other GMs were stunned by the news.

The only way that Luongo will be traded with his no trade clause in effect, is if the Florida GM is high on crack while Gillis makes a trade offer.

i wonder how other GMs around the league feel about Burke. I wonder if some teams refuse to deal with Toronto because they dont want to deal with Burke. Maybe there was a big trade (luongo) that was being held up because burke is too hard to deal with and the other GM spoke to MLSE ownership about it
