You guys are all just assuming that Burke is untouchable and that he wouldn't fire Brian and replace him with some cronie who'd do whatever he'd want him to.
And also about people pointing out the Rangers not working....well look at teams like New Jersey, Detroit, Colorado, Dallas, etc . All teams with a higher payroll than the Canucks that have won the Cup.
Tell you what though....he'd be a good minority shareholder though. Pump in the money but the team is still secure with Macaw having the majority. However I don't see him wanting to be 2nd in charge sortof deal. For him to become the majority owner though I don't know. We have it pretty good right now. Middle of the pack salary wise I think and a competitive team. Could use some more money but is it worth the risk? I sure don't know.
