At the end of the article, he says something along the lines of "a little editorial change would be nice". Really? So the editor should be filtering out specific rumours that displease certain GM's? Seems silly.

Ultimately, when you're running the richest team in the league, with the biggest media base, and you've got a 26th place team with no prospects of signing an FA to help your chances, trade rumours get jacked up. Deal with it.
Burkie loves the media, and hates the media...he uses the media, then disses the media...

He has made himself this type of target, and then gets cranky with HNIC? How come all the other GM's aren't upset with the gang at HNIC when they do all the speculation about their teams, and potential moves? Who left the quiet scene of Anaheim for the hub bub of media activity in TO...
