Burke to manage the Leafs

Brian Burke will become the Maple Leafs new general manager by the weekend.

Burke's deal will include the rest of this season, then a five-year contract that kicks in next season. He made about $1.4 million managing the Ducks, and is expected to see his salary doubled in Toronto.

I presume Fletcher consulted Burke on the acquisition of Lee Stempniak yesterday.

Great article by Damien Cox on Burke.
