Rumour: Brian Burke to be a Hawk

Heard a rumour from Tim Horton's this morning that Brian Burke is going to sign with Chicago Blackhawks.

A maybe surrounded by question marks at best....

Larry Brooks is the source that brings this one to the surface...

Pass me a few grains of salt...

Finally, there seems to be a method to Brian Burke's recent lack of madness. Slap Shots has been told by two sources that the former Vancouver GM, normally a rhetorical bomb-thrower but remarkably reasonable and even almost statesmanlike in his recent TSN appearances, will take over the Blackhawks' hockey operations (such as they are) upon the end of the lockout.

If he takes the post....

of GM or overseeing hockey operations he'll have a nice mix of young talent to build around and given his resume should guide them back to respectability on the on/off the ice. He's got the ABC Line ( Arnason, Bell, Calder ), Ruuttu on the rise as well as Radulov, Yakubov and Vorobiev, Bolland; the Hawks greatest strength may lie in the d-corps in the years to come with McCarthy and Vandermeer already in tow and Barker, Seabrook, Babchuk, Duncan still developing. Some what of a question mark in goal with Thibault ( can he stay healthy ) although he is a battler - the backups are a plenty with Munro, Leighton, Anderson but neither seems to be of a No.1 calibre.....

Burke is done. Still a good goalie but he's niether "solid" or "great" any more. The was unable to unseat an unexperienced Robert Esche in the playoffs last year.

I think you are confused with Sean Burke.

oh my bad. Brian Burke turned The Canucks into a mediocre contender. His new team is dripping with upside. He'll do much better in Chicago

Thats bad news if you ask me because i was kinda hoping once Bettman gets this whole CBA resolved he gets fired and Brian Burke takes over. He seems well suited in that role and he knows his hockey. It was wishfull thinking and i guess this news means its not gonna be so

And now Burke is going to be given credit for building another franchise into a contender... though all the pieces are prettymuch in place.

If Bettman gets it resolved, and the owners get their cap, there is no way he gets fired.

GOSH! You idiot!
Kidding. I just couldnt resist trowing a "Napoleonism" out with an Avatar like that. No harm intended. Now maybe if Gary baked Bob a cake, and Bob drew a picture...
