Could the Brian Burke era in Toronto be close to an actual end?

Fired as Maple Leafs general manager in January, Burke became an adviser with the organization.

TSN reported on Tuesday night that at least one team has asked the Leafs for permission to talk to Burke for a non-GM role, believed to be as a consultant or a scout. During his final news conference in Toronto, Burke said he wanted to be a GM in the NHL again as soon as possible.
