Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Grange and David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,
“This notion MLSE doesn’t want to win is bull,” says Brian Burke, the president and general manager of the Leafs. Burke is 22 months into a six-year, $19.5-million (U.S.) contract, awarded with the expectation that he’ll deliver a Stanley Cup to Toronto as he did with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007.
“They gave me complete support and independence and have given me the resources to fix it,” Burke says. “If we can’t turn this thing around, you can blame me. It’s the best-run company I’ve ever worked for. I’m proud to work for MLSE, I’m proud to work for Richard Peddie.”
Fans have no choice but to take Burke’s word for it, but the problems on the ice, floor and field seem to drown out his defiance.
What price losing? Have Greater Toronto Area sports fans finally had enough?
