This entire lockout is all about Bettman protecting the weaker, small market teams best interests, so Burke (despite it being against his own teams best interest) is invited in to speak to 5 year contracts because that supports Bettman's true agenda in the process, and Burke's own personal beliefs on the subject.
Your definition of "meddling" is pretty wacky.
As a Leaf fan, I don't see how Burke being involved can be viewed as anything but a good thing.
