I have heard and read too much over the summer about how this team is no better than last year or the year before that. I also hear that GM Brian Burke has done nothing since arriving in 2008.

Well, I won't go all the way back to '08, but I will explain why the Maple Leafs have a better team in 2011-12 than last year's squad.
