The initial Burke report
There's a big-name free agent out there by the name of Brian Burke. Have any teams expressed interest in hiring Burke in some capacity?
Dreger: At least one team has reached out to the Toronto Maple Leafs to ask permission to speak with Brian Burke. Now, what would his role be? It would either be in a consulting or a scouting capacity, perhaps in the front office.
Brian Burke is looking for a bridge opportunity, an opportunity that may lead to a job with an organization as their next general manager. So teams are kicking tires on Burke.
Sounds more like Buffalo since the Caps have never really stocked up on front offices types. Pegula seems more likely to shell out for such a thing.
Edit: Back to Anaheim:
@THNRyanKennedy: Brian Burke joins Anaheim as part-time pro scout.
