Yeah, Burke's a hypocrite, but he's doing a couple of interesting things here by his comments on the Heatley situation:

* He's providing a legitimate reason why the Leafs would not be in the running, even though that's a pipe dream anyway. It gives a rabid fanbase something to chew on in tha tregard.

* Keeps the circumstances of the situation even more public, which is a beat of gamesmenship.

At the end of the day, Burke is doing his job as the GM of the Leafs. He's looking out for that team's interests.
