5-Step Plan for Dave Nonis to Make Toronto Maple Leafs a Cup Finalist in 3 Years

Dave Nonis (right) has taken over as Leafs GM. Brian Burke (left) was fired on Wednesday.

The surprising decision made by the Toronto Maple Leafs to fire general manager Brian Burke (via TSN's Bob McKenzie) right before the 2012-13 NHL season has put his successor, Dave Nonis, under a lot of pressure to build on the progress that Burke made over the last few years.

Leafs fans are starving for success, and after so many failed roster moves over the last few years, many of them think that the team is still a long ways away from contending in the Eastern Conference. 

Let's examine a five-point plan for Nonis to follow as he attempts to build the Leafs into a Stanley Cup contender.
