TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS ARE AN F-ing Joke.I like Brian Burke I really do but This man or mlse who ever is running the show is a huge joke. Its not that hard to make a great trade a f-ing monkey can do it . Lets the man do his job and if no one else is stopping him from doing his job rogers needs to find someone who can... U guys lucky im not The big dog cause id be fireing people starting from A to z

Lets go leafs before u cant get anyone... another year of the same players. I figured out how the leafs draft so crosby is number 1 then we count 60 down from crosby and now we have are pick...

Burke is Quinn 2.0. his 2 biggest mistakes, not offering stamkos an offer sheet (which sources said he would have accepted). and letting giguere go, and now being in search for a veteran goaltender.

his trades are great (phaneuf, franson, gardiner, lupul), and his signings are awful (kom, liles,etc)

actually most of his moves have been good to great,but for some reason this team will not gel or try to get over the hump they need to. why?? who knows.Seems like when good players come to toronto they soon become unproductive or non interested. connelly for instance just didnt seem interested in playing hockey after the first 40 games. Schenn tried to make the same mistakes over and over and getting the same results.????this team is a mystery and for forty years plus
