That person will almost certainly be Burke. At least, it should be.
Obviously far from a done deal. But what do you think? I think he'd be a good choice for the USA. But, would it be a distraction from GM'ing the Ducks?

i dont see it being a distraction. its not like he's wheeling and dealing 24-7, this gives him chance to make connections with some key FA's as well

its all about networking
