Also too bad that Burke cannot stand NY in every shape, way and means possible.

He's an overrated GM. Naslund and Bertuzzi were there before he became GM. His drafts haven't been that impressive either.(-Where are the mid round gems? The Sedin Twins should have done more by now. They were picked 2 and 3, after all-) Aucoin for Cloutier? Not a great deal. I give him credit for doing Bure for Jovonovsky, Shaefer for Salo, bringing Linden back, and acquiring Brendan Morrison for Mogilny. But most of their 'core' players were already there. I give him credit for keeping the good roster he inherited in tact, but with the way our team is currently constructed, we do not need a GM with a shady draft record and someone with a small track record of stealing good young players in trades.

Burke's a better GM than Sather, but he just may be a bigger arrogant piece of crap, too.

But he gives far better press conferences. Just imagine some of Burke's reactions to Larry Brooks Sunday morning columns. That alone would be more entertaining than anything MSG has seen in a while.

Yeah, he's almost as aggrogant, however at this point, is there ANYTHING that is not an upgrade over Sather? Burke may not like NY, but he'd do a much better job than Saviour Glen. But Lil' Jimmy is committed to "Sather or Bust".

I guess I couldn't detest him any more than Sather.

You're right, though. Pointless to discuss a replacement for Sather during my lifeime.
