Crank up the Rumor Mill...

and let the frantic speculation begin!

Brian Burke is out as GM of the Anaheim Ducks and Bob Murray, who has been with the Ducks in an executive capacity since '99, will replace him.

Does this mean he's headed to the Leafs? No, not necessarily. In fact some have even linked him to the Bruins. However, despite everyone's constant denials that a deal was on the table for Burke in TO, the fact is that this whole thing is all playing out according to the script many predicted a long time ago. And I, for one, would welcome Burke as my new hockey overlord.

Burke has always struck me as GM that dislikes the media, and does whatever he thinks is right, which means he is PERFECT for Toronto! I say we roll out the red carpart of him as our new hockey master!

After reading a lot of what Bitter Leaf Fan ( has written about Burke, I'm weary of him. I don't think he's the savior as he's been made out to be.

But you're right about him being perfect re: the Toronto media. He might make Damien Cox's head explode.
