Brian Burke is doing a great job in fixing, retooling and remodelling the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I know, I know. It's a bold statement, but that doesn't make it untrue.

The past couple of weeks have been some of the most eventful in Leaf history. It witnessed the next steps in the complete face-lift of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Francois Beauchemin, Kris Versteeg, Tomas Kaberle and a conditional seventh-round pick were all shipped out of Ontario's capital, while Joffrey Lupul, Aaron Voros, two first-round picks, a third-round pick, prospects Jake Gardiner and Joe Colborne, a conditional second-round pick and a conditional fourth-rounder came in.

If I had been saying that instead of typing it, I'd be out of breath.

Burke has made a substantial amount of moves, and what makes that even more exciting is the fact that he isn't done yet.

He has expressed interest in acquiring another forward and defenceman, as well as trading his recently-acquired draft picks. Heck, one of the picks he traded for was offered to another team immediately.

Brian Burke's multitude of moves have greatly effected the Leafs of today and the Leafs of the future. Here are the top 10 reasons why he's done a great job in the past few weeks.
