When Brian Burke came to Toronto three years ago he made it clear that his version of the Maple Leafs wouldn’t be pushed around. The guy who made a career out of constructing big, bruising hockey teams was going to muscle up an organization that had gone soft.
After using a similar recipe with success in places like Vancouver and Anaheim, the plan was a simple one. The first two lines would be scoring lines and the third and fourth lines would be the intimidation crew.
Now, three years into his tenure it seems that in some ways that mantra has changed.
