How Big's Your Burkie?


I gotta admit, I was falling off of the BBB (Brian Burke Bandwagon), but then the deadline came along, and suddenly I can see the big picture.  And by big I mean BIG.  For all of you stataholics, I have a new stat for you: I call it the Burkie.  It's used to measure a prospect's chance of being acquired by the aforementioned BB.  OK, it goes like this: take a player's height in inches, multiply it by two and add it to his weight in pounds.  Voila!  The Burkie. 

For instance, take a look at three prospects BB has picked up: Mueller, Joe Colborne and Irwin.  At 6'3 and 220, Mueller rates a 370, Colbourne also comes in at 370, and the lightweight Brayden Irwin comes in at 369.  And the biggest prospect?  Jamie Devane, whose Burkie measures up at a whopping 371!  I figure this has to be part of the plan: build a team that can compete along the wall.  Anyone remember a time when we played folks like Osborne and Eastwood?
