Running on a delay by the looks of it from the tweets and the actually video. That's hilarious.

Burke says his Sr. Advisory role will be with the board of MLSE, not hockey ops and says he found that out yesterday.

He thought it was senior advisor to hockey operations, but turns out it's senior advisor to the board of governors.

Glad he's gone but nevertheless it was a class PC. Too bad he's not telling why though. Pointless PC other than to say his thankyou's and goodbyes. . Ahha ha I see he is starting to take shots. Keep him up there.

Yeah, that really pissed me off. You can definitely tell he's sour towards the ownership which is definitely warranted.

Keep the gossip away. There is no proof or anything about rumours so keep them away.
