Burke agrees to join Maple Leafs 11-27-08

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Former Ducks general manager Brian Burke (above) has agreed to join the Maple Leafs as their president and general manager.

EN Says: While Burke might offer some funny quotes for the Toronto media, don't expect the Maple Leafs to be a joke for too much longer. Burke knows how to build a Stanley Cup contender and considering the Maple Leafs' immense resources, Burke should have this franchise steered in the right direction sooner than later.
