Burke Trying To Reverse The Record

from Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun,

Brian Burke probably could not care less, but the Maple Leafs general manager hit a milestone on Monday night.

With the Leafs’ 4-2 defeat against the Philadelphia Flyers, Burke hit 100 regulation losses in his time as the Leafs GM, a tenure that began nearly three years ago, on Nov. 29, 2008. Burke is close to the same mark in wins, as the Leafs are 99-100-33 since Burke was hired.

For those who keep track the old-fashioned way — where a loss is a loss no matter what the prize is for finishing with one less goal than the opposition — the Leafs are 34 games under .500 with Burke in charge.

Burke is continuing to try to build what could be a playoff contender, and the majority of remnants of the past are gone. This team is his.
