Bob McKenzie shoots down Brian Burke departure rumors


Apparently there’s a new undercurrent of rumors about Brian Burke either leaving or being fired from his post as Toronto Maple Leafs general manager. (Honestly, I’ve been more focused on the 2012 Stanley Cup finals and things grounded in at least a bit more factual information.) Well, Bob McKenzie is on hand to more-or-less shoot down those rumblings, although he does point to one potential caveat: the Maple Leafs’ ownership changes could eventually bring an alteration down the line. Maybe.

It’s probably reasonable to assume that the 2012-13 season is a make or break one for Burke – assuming he gets that far, as McKenzie seems to suggest.
