No..I picture him at his introductory press conference ripping apart his shirt to reveal a Boston Bruins logo and then he and Chiarelli high five and say "We've been working together all along..**** you Toronto"

Not a big one, but I do like the Vanrymsdyk (sp?) trade and they do have a few good young d men in Gardner and Ryan Murray.

You mean Gardiner and Morgan Reilly. True, but they have them by sucking out loud for a generation, not out of any acumen demonstrated by anyone. ever.

Could also have the Bruins wear a "BB" patch on their shoulders. Either one works for me.

I must say regardless of him doing a terrible job up there, he really is a nice guy, just a terrible gm. I wish him all the best, honestly.

Last I checked Burke had as many Cups as Chiarelli did... Career paths heading in different directions, but anyone who doubts he would be an asset to our front office in some capacity doesn't know what they are talking about. He has a lot of contacts and a lot of clout... Just don't let him make any trades wo running it by Chia first! :-)

And he's willing to rent a barn and fight someone if it comes down to it.

I've always liked him. I've always liked his mentality. He's a good guy from all accounts and a great hockey man IMO...

By all accounts from everything I've ever read, he's a helluva guy as well as a helluva hockey guy.

Is he tough, loud and old school? Yes.

And I like that too.

The fact that the Leafs are keeping him in house speaks alot about how they feel about him leaving...He's have a new job in 5 minutes (to quote Rob Ryan)
