I'm under the impression that Burke was there on behalf of USA hockey for some preliminary scouting. Just a correlation but has Macgregor been hired to Hockey Canada to do the same for the Olympics, World Championships etc.?

Aside from that I would have to believe he is involved in the pro aspect part of the Oilersnscouting in some senses. Interesting nonetheless and what I was wondering as well. Much the same when Ken Holland and ST were trying to figure out how to operate that television in the pressbox. I automatically assumed they were showing the other person clips or a clip of a player that may be of potential interest to the other.
