Today, the Maple Leafs shocked the hockey world by hiring Brian Burke at the position of General Manager.
Burke, 47, who previously was manager of a Zellers store in Saskatoon, was surprised when he received the call. Still, he agreed to go forward in an adventure that is new for him, despite years of experience in EA NHL games.
Richard Peddie said of the signing "Hey, it's the closest we got of getting a guy named Brian Burke with management experience. I believe he will continue the long history of Leafs excellence spanning 4 decades".
The other Brian Burke, GM for the Anaheim Ducks, only referred to the hiring as "creepy".
