Leafs Burke is Running out of Scapegoats

September 18th 2012 - His arrival was one of the most highly anticipated and welcomed arrivals of any sports figure in recent Toronto memory. When Brian Burke took over as GM of the Maple Leafs it was seen as the end of incompetence in Leafs Nation.

Need a Miracle in Motown?

With Nicklas Lidstrom retired and Brad Stuart requesting a trade to the west coast, the Detroit Red Wings defence will look a lot different next season.
