y leafs should hired bowman in the summer of 07 (when bowman offered to take over)
1) bowman is one of, if not the most, knowledgable hockey mind in the world. y would u not want him to run your team?
2) bowman have connections and respect from the hockey world, therefore he can lure or convince other great hockey people to work for the leafs.
3) he is for sure better than jfj, y not upgrade?
4) there was no indication dat burke wanted to move from anahiem, where he just won the cup.
5) hiring bowman shows the team wanna build a championship team, which at least gives hope to the fanbase. jfj have no direction, he doesnt know wether to rebuild or contend, and the leafs r stuck doing nothing and continue to be medicore.
