Probably his thoughts on the Winter Classic announcement.

Not every Burke appearance is trade related.

If he had a trade to announce, I doubt he'd be going on HC to do it.

As has been said, it's likely related to the WC announcement.

Something of importance was just announced. You don't think it has anything to do with that?

Unbelievable.

- We're honored to play in the Winter Classic.

- I like the way the team has been playing.

- We're not any closer to the number Grabo wants, but feel we can get a deal done.

- No trades yet but I'm working on several different things and hope I can get a deal done.


...Is my guess.

No HBO 24/7 deal yet. Still in progress. Burkie loves the series, though.

When asked about concerns over access to the team, Burke has talked to previous coaches/GM's and HBO isn't very intrusive, but also teams have very little say in what can be not shown.

"We have 24/7 right now in Toronto!" - one of his comments

Guys this is obviously a trade announcement, just like at 10:30 this am, but something overshadowed it.

regarding trades-

kyreos " come on burkie, give us something here"

burke:
"it's very quiet, frustrating, teams are asking too much -too many buyers, not enough sellers
"we're playing well so it changes our perpective etc..
" i expect a logjam of activity at the deadline

millard:
"brian do us a favor and make a deal for us at the deadline"

burke:
no answer - hung up

Why should he do a deal?

We have always given away too much prior to Burke.Why should he do a deal if the price is wrong.Courtnall for Kordic,Niedermayer for Kurvers,Clark for Luongo are these the kind of deals Burke should do just to make the media happy?The whole thing is overdone and overhyped.They talk about this thing for weeks,then nothing happens.He is saying the sellers have no urgency right now.We dont need Carter or most of the players mentioned i.e Malone.Don't forget if we sneak in at 8th,that means a better draft pick.Of all the proposals I have seen,all of them looked like overpayment.Stall makes $8 million and we havent even signed Grabo who is a better player right now.

Good one Burke for hanging up.
