I've got a feeling you Anaheim fans are going to hear some classic Burke. Up til now he's been kind of tame in the media compared to when he was with the Canucks.

Good question. I hope you all get a chance to see why we Canucks fans loved Burke. He used to taunt callers on Vancouver Call-in shows to give him some hard ball questions.

Maybe they'll collect in a little pool at the bottom of the Stanley Cup.

Burke's a hypocrite for saying Penner is not worth the money, but then turning around and giving Bertuzzi $4 million. At least Penner has upside, Bertuzzi is likely to get worse.

Secondly, if Burke keeps saying he has no problem with offer sheets, then why should a team offer a lowball offer sheet? All that means is the other team would match. If you're going to go for an offer sheet you might as well make it an offer the other team won't match.

As much as I disagree with Burke's assessment, that is a great jab!!!

Here's a classic one from the presser:

"We take back 3 picks, and given Kevin's recent performance, I expect them to be excellent picks"

Classic Burke.

We didnt give up a first, a second and a third for an overpaid Bertuzzi

The Oilers have Anaheim's 1st rounder next year though too, so how many picks do they want? The Oilers gained like 10 1st rounders (between players and picks) over the course of the last year.

I don't get what Burke is really saying ... he's fine with the RFA sheets but he doesn't like the money. Well if the Oilers offer Penner a $3 million offer, then the Ducks would just match, so why make an RFA offer sheet when you know it will be matched?

Burke says it seems like they still want to keep the 44-45 million cap. Meaning some salary moves would still have to be made if Scotty and Teemu come back.

Did you guys hear that if Selanne and Nedermayer come back he may have to have a fire sale?

I think at this point Scotty and Teemu aren't going to be coming back.

But even if it were 2.8 million we would have been above the cap, and may not have matched then.

He's fine with what they do. They stop lowball offers. We can't offer Getzlaf the minimum, and force him to take it as he won't be playing anyhere else. Getzlaf would then just wait for the offersheets to come in and pick the one he wants. He get's the money he deserves, and thing keep going.

I kind of think one of the 2 will be back. Just a feeling. Selanne more than Niedermayer.

Team1040 radio in Vancouver is saying it's 99% likely that Niedermayer is done, and it will be official in a couple of weeks, if anyone comes back, it will be Selanne
