Don't Ask Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke About His Job Security

That's what John Moore of Newstalk 1010 did yesterday, albeit by first noting that "a lot of people" think Burke ought to be fired. With even Don Cherry calling Burke out for, of all things, not stocking his roster with any Ontario natives, it was worth asking Burke about what kind of pressure he must be feeling. Moore could have approached the question more delicately, since it's not like Burke was going to say he deserves to be canned. As you might expect, the conversation didn't last much longer.
