After years of truculent success the Screaming Trees finally relieved themselves of the sack of dead weight that is Brian Burke. In true Leafish fashion they not only did this less than two weeks before the season opener and after 113 days of the lockout, but they compounded their "genius" further in promoting Nonis to GM.
Looks like they are still following the Vancouver model of looking to finish first and falling flat, rather than sneaking in the eigth spot and winning it all.
AO, congrats on maybe the best thread title ever.
Burke will stay on as an advisor. I don't see this being a change at all. Common sense would be to have this as a clean cut, blow up the team, admit that you want to have a younger, faster and developing team and pick someone who can draft and bring in quality people. Promoting Dallas Eakin to have a supportive and developing coach instead of another hard head.
The Leafs even suck at sucking!
Good-bye, Brian. I'll never forget what we shared; "thank you, Kessel! clap clap clap-clap-clap"
... ditto. A piece of genius is what that was ...
So. They fire the GM who likes dirty goon style hockey and who brought in a coach who likes dirty goon style hockey. Replace him with a GM who built a team on speed and skill. Do they dump Carlyle too?
Don Cherry was behind this some how.
Still, not as bad as MLSE hiring a current soccer player from Europe to coach Toronto FC. It literally equates to having Chris Phillips head coaching a team in the KHL right now. *facepalm*
And yes, both moves happened within the same week.
Someone over at MLSE has been sucking on the glue bag too hard...
Dave Nonis, The Messiah version 14.0.
The timing of this move is just mind boggling. That whole organization is in disarray, from the top guy right down to the stick boy.
Brian Burke should run for mayor of Toronto. They deserve each other.
"Brian Burke should run for mayor of Toronto."
why would he want to take a step back like that?
If Ottawa fired Murray, would TSN drop everything to cover it?
they would if Brian Burke took over in Ottawa
And then he takes Bryan's team and wins the Stanley Cup. Where have I seen this scenario before?
AO, congrats on maybe the best thread title ever.Amen!
And then he takes Bryan's team and wins the Stanley Cup. Where have I seen this scenario before?LOL.
Senior I thought about the same thing when I saw the TSN page. They had like, 11 videos about it.... lol.Also yes, this is the best thread title ever.
The Leafs are a great example of how you can throw money at something, but it won't make it work.
The leafs are like that commercial with Mike Rowe for Dirty Jobs.
They don't get paid to succeed, they get paid to try and fail, which makes them very successful failures.
