WHAT NOW FOR BURKE AND LEAFS?
Brian Burke has made some recent appearances alongside Gary Bettman and Bill Daly on the NHL side of the labour negotiations, which raises some fascinating questions. Is Burke representing himself, his personal views, or the views of the ownership of the Toronto Maple Leafs?
Burke is a known hardliner on the NHL’s side, a hawk on the owners’ side. But it would be in the best interest of current Leafs ownership to be playing as soon as possible. In other words, it is thought the Leafs’ owners — Larry Tanenbaum, George Cope of Bell and Nadir Mohammad — would be closer to dove than hawk when it comes to settling the lockout.
This labour split of sorts has some observers wondering what Burke’s long-term future would be with his personal politics taking precedence over that of his team.
