Brian Burke.....stepping out of Hockey Ops effective may 1st. Not enough truculence! He's been a non factor for a while now.

Treliving is the man now.

Best quote in sports.

Bye Bye Burkie - you will be missed. Could see him in some reduced ambassadorial role with another club or with TSN maybe. Lol.

Truculent hockey is over (for now, anyway) and this is the equivalent of the fat lady singing.

The broadcast booth is where he belongs, and that's not meant as an insult.

Well, at least when it wasn't working they shelved Jagr without much fan outcry. Imagine what would've happened had they done the same with Iggy.

And they would've had to. Iggy was no longer NHL-caliber his final season in Colorado/LA. He could rip one-timers on the power play, but was a complete liability everywhere else, even in a 4th line role.
