Sean Burke signs extension
 
Per James Mirtle:

Quote:

Coyotes have signed Sean Burke to a contract extension as assistant to the GM/goaltender coach.
I think that's the first I've heard of the assistant to the GM duties, but this is good news.

EDIT: Per Sarah McLellan, it's a promotion:

Extension also comes with a promotion for Burke. Add assistant to the GM to his resume.
And it looks like there's a tactical benefit here too:

Coyotes get goalie coach Sean Burke under a multi-year contract extension. That's step 1 to getting Smith locked up long-term.

FANTASTIC news. I'm happy that this was finally done.

Great. I remember seeing him at the Draft table so I assumed he wasn't going anywhere. Probably waiting for that July 9 deadline too or something. One of the best things this team has done was getting rid of Fuhr and replacing him with Burke.

BigGumby 07-10-2012 01:48 PM

This is a great move.

Burke can be attributed with a good chunk of this team's success over the past 3 seasons. Locking him up long-term was a must.

And another domino falls...

Yes! Awesome!

First order of business, go find some hidden gem goalie to back up Smith and dump that loser Bryzgalov.

Haha. LaBarbera. Wow. Serious Freudian slip.

Finally some good news has been happening of late amidst all the chaos...

I think we need to replace jason with.somebody that can take over for smith if he ends up pulling a bryzgalov . And unfortunately that isn't labarbera

Dending on the cap floor/our budget, I want Steve Mason.

krepitch 07-10-2012 03:36 PM

Excellent!

(I love how this board appreciates how important this is, too.) :)

Good for Burke. Maybe this is some sort of apprenticeship in management for him? Get his feet wet for later in his career if he decides to do something other than a tender coach? Or Don just enjoys and trusts his input and company, so Burke got a bonus?

Blubba Jenkins 07-10-2012 06:46 PM

Am I going crazy? Wasn't he re-signed weeks ago? Maybe it was a dream I had? How sad is my life that I would have dreams about HF Boards?

Kimahri 07-10-2012 06:55 PM

This is seriously the best news of the summer. The Fuhr years were just brutal. Can you imagine how Brian Boucher would've performed under Burke?

He wasn't exactly a stud under Allaire.

Again, thank you!
