Amateur scouting isn't Burke's forte. Burke has built teams via NHL veterans for the most part. As a pro scout or as an advisor, similar to Craig Patrick, Burke would have value. In fact, he'd be a good complement to someone like Jarmo who is clearly most knowledgeable at this point about the scouting side of the game.
I only see Burke making sense for us if Patrick is leaving and the team wants someone else to fill a similar type of role for Jarmo. Not sure how necessary it is with JD already in the role of president.
