Let's get something straight...it's BB's show and he has final say on ALL matters concerning the Leafs and Marlies
He might get feedback from guys like Nonis, Poulin, Loiselle, Fletcher...and a lot of info from Hughes and Mitchell as well
But ALL final decisions are his
Official position for Nonis is Senior Vice-President of Hockey Operations...he's just another "talking head" for BB (although i will say he's an excellent piece of upper management)
Fuck me..i really wish some of you people would get your facts straight before shooting your mouths off
It fucking irritating and annoying
People that have the last say normally have the least to do with it... in any business.
Burke doesn't draft these prospects, his assistants and scouting staff do. Burke has been more responsible for the trades / NCAA signings, and the... failed overseas ones. Listen, I don't even dislike BB. I'm not focused on hockey nearly as much anymore. Basketball & Baseball as of now, for me.
