Burke signed as part-time scout

Quote:
The Ducks have named Brian Burke to a part-time professional scouting position within the organization.

“We are happy to welcome Brian back to the organization,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “Anytime you can add a person of his quality to your staff, it makes your organization better. We’ve had success working together before and look forward to doing it again.”

EDIT: God damnit. I thought I had been the fastest for once. Damn you, MQ!

Must have been less. When I was done typing, I opened the Ducks forum in a new tab to see whether I had been beaten, but wasn't, yet. So it was changing the tabs, hitting submit, and the time it took to submit.

Yeah, sure. He commanded BM to hire him. By next year he'll have usurped the GM position back.

Am I the only one that wishes he was in our PR department as opposed to our scouting staff?

Team spokesperson and special-assistant to the mascot.

I really hope we continue drafting Swedes and Finns equally to NA players and dont resort back to the Gritty, North American ways of Burke, that essentially wasted 2 drafts.

But still, for all his faults, Burke is a quality asset in any management corps.

Team spokesperson and special mascot to the assistance, rather.

Oh, I think he'll find a way to get his quotes out there still.

I hate this move, Burke's draft record is dismal.

Edit: he's a pro scout... Thank The Lord.

Unless Madden and Murray are leaving, I don't think you have to worry about that.

He isn't in charge of our draft. He isn't even in charge of our scouts.

I think the important distinction that needs to be made is that he's signed as a pro scout. Everything draft is for amateur scouts, generally. Tough to say the capacity, but Burke's eyes will likely be on NHL players, for signings, trades and maybe even making the occasional famous trip to Europe to grab a free wallet.

Professional scout, not amateur. Brian has one of the best hockey minds and I'm sure he jumped at this opportunity in Anaheim.

Well, judging by the twittersphere - we're back at the center of the hockey universe for a few seconds.

As long as he has no influence on prospects I'm okay with this.

Australia is well known for it's fast internet

But seriously, I like this move for the Ducks, we have quite a solid management team in place already, adding Burke can only be a good thing. As long as he doesn't encourage BM to trade a top 6 player for Doug Weight

This position for Burke is just simply put, stupid. He sucks at analyzing young talent, look at his draft history when he was GM. This was not the position he should had been put in. Should had a PR position, Burke talking to media plus Gabby as our coach. Our team's spotlight would get bigger and bigger.
