USA Hockey executive director David Ogrean recently told ESPN.com that the GM for 2010 will be selected before the start of the 2008-09 NHL season. That decision will set the tone for the rest of the team and have a significant impact on the Americans' ability to ice a roster that can compete for a gold medal.
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?
