Toronto Maple Leafs

The Leafs still want Burke

From Mark Zwolinkski: “The long-standing belief is that Burke is the Leafs’ target for president and GM, but they will go through proper channels to land him, even if it takes a year, or a month. Until then, Fletcher remains in control, and will guide the club through the draft, trades, buyouts, free agency and the hiring of a new coach if need be.”

Apparently the Leafs are looking to form a super management team that could have many different people working together as the Leafs’ GM/President. Their main focus appears to be Burke, but the organization has interviewed Dave Nonis and also have reported interest in Doug Armstrong. In my opinion, the Leafs should leave the staff hiring to the new GM, instead of naming his support staff beforehand.
