Burke will embrace the new system, whatever it is, he's not stupid, this will be how it's gonna be.
We'll see, he's a blowhard. He talks out of his ass more than half the time. One minute he wants an experienced goalie the next his reported interest in Bernier goes up. At other times he says something but does the other. It's getting rediculous. I'm fine with him being the President of the team but when it comes to being the GM he's done a mediocre job overall. Only real thing that's improved since he's arrived is the farm system, other than that we've done jack squat with him here. I don't think a new CBA system changes his philosophy at all. He's a hard ass and will always be a hard ass. I'm starting to see what Canuck fans were saying about him when he first got here.
