Brian Burke Interview on the Fan590

176

I'm surprised Burke didn't strangle them in the first 15 seconds because Cox and McCown are laying on the "asshole" thick and heavy. Anywho, give it a listen to a) further the legend of Brian Burke, b) get some good sound bites of the legend that is Brian Burke. Part 2 starting with Burke's thoughts on the SI players' poll here.

Horse Up Moose - Burke Donates Horse to Toronto Police

4

Following a visit to the Toronto Police Service Mounted Unit barn earlier this year, Toronto Maple Leafs president and general manager Brian Burke inquired about donating a horse. When told that his generosity would be accepted, he was asked to come up with a name and he promptly responded, with Moose. Burke called his deceased son, Brendan, Moose because of his large build.

Brian Burke Interviewed for Opinion on Concussion Research

10

I think people are reading Burke's comments on this all wrong. From them I gather that he a) is well aware of the risks of injury, brain or otherwise, in contact sports; b) knew those risks but still decided to play; and c) would like to see more substantiated and verified research done on the topic of CTE before people go to hysterics over this issue and begin doing things like pulling them kids from youth hockey. What do you think?

Saw this when I was lurking on Bluebird Banter, gives some really good insight into how Burke runs things.

Burke no fan of CBA loophole

41

"... if a team has four guys on contract like that, they’re actually icing a team with false values on their players. And if another team is playing it square, then you’re losing ground." Right you are, Mr. Burke. Right you are.

Update from Burkey in Las Vegas

70

"I’ve turned down a late first-round pick for a player on my team already," Burke said, though he was vague whether it was Kaberle or Luke Schenn, whose name was also put forward by another team. "We’re at double digits in terms of teams who have made offers or expressed interest. There’s been lots of activity." "I have not had meaningful discussions with (Anaheim GM) Bob Murray about any player on my roster or his, certainly not Ryan."

Father's Day in the NHL

3

Wish I had seen this fantastic post by Derek Zona about how the day is extremely difficult for three members of the NHL family earlier so I could have shared it with you folks. Luckily for me, I was able to spend the day with my dad watching the World Cup and playing soccer in the backyard. Hope everyone had a chance to wish their dad a Happy Father's Day and tell them that you love them.

It just summarizes some of the stuff he talked about on Hockey Central, good stuff.
