Shanny got permission from Arizona to talk to Sean Burke ... really?  from Arizona?  Shanny must really want a yes man.   

 

Watch his presser again it's clear that he wants a Yes man but I don't think Burkes son is a yes man.

I wanna say maple leafs fans reserve better, But so many of them are stark raving mad.

They hype up their own prospects like they're the second coming of Gretzkythen as soon as they get to the NHL they sh** all over them.

I know with the size of the fan base, they're bound to have more than normal amounts of jackassery, but its still ridiculously annoying, and I take pleasure in the franchises ineptitude just because of them.

Their fan base is to big for the Leafs own good. I remember threads about Gardiner and the Norris, Reimer Vezina and now all of a sudden they want to get rid of these guys. Then add to that all the people who are more annoying as the media there..thinking that players shouldn't have a private life and that a rebuild can be done in 1 year

..I feel bad for their sane knowledgeable fans they really deserve better but man TSN just confirmed that the Toronto job is GM in title only ..Shanahan is going to be the final voice a guy with no experience wow.

I don't think you know who Sean Burke is...


"The leader must never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert."

When asked who won, Babcock said, “Well it doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t lose. It’s like going bear hunting, you take a slow guy with you in case the bear is hungry.”

You referred to him as Burke's son...

Toronto needs another NHL team, and bad. Leafs fans should be demanding it.
