I'd have slung mud back too.

You can hate Brian Burke for a lot of things but he always has the back of his players and management.
Burke on Allaire in March: "I think we have the best goalie coach on the planet."
Burke on Allaire in Sept: "Allaireís approach with his goalies hadnít altered even though rule changes meant his insistence on the butterfly technique wasnít working."

Burke doesn't do himself any favours.
