Just announced: Brian Burke is the new Leafs President and GM. Wow, didn’t see that one coming.
I was going to call it the worst-kept secret in sports, but I don’t think anyone attempted to keep it secret, even when Burke was still employed by the Ducks.
Now that Our Saviour has come, the Leafs are a lock for the Stanley Cup within three years, right? If you believe the Toronto sports media who have been going apeshit over Burke for a year, you might believe that too. Personally, I will reserve judgement for a while. At least let the man arrive in Toronto before you start planning the Stanley Cup parade.
