Burke is a far superior general manager, as well as businesman compared to Kevin Lowe. Burke has at least class, instead of publicly bashing a fellow general manager like he just did.

The Oilers were a small market team until after the lockout.

Burke and class? You must be high. Burke's been ragging on Lowe for a year now.

Lowe didn't start this war and has kept his mouth shut the whole time...tell when he's opened his mouth before today?


-Burke was adamant in having Cloutier as the Canucks goalie....it was their downfall

-Arrived in Anaheim with every major impact player there before he got there....except for Niedermayer
-draft Bobby Ryan, a bust thus far
-Burke signed his old buddy Bertuzzi then realized his stupid mistake and had to buy him out in Anaheim


Burke is a moron....Lowe destroyed him and it was EPIC

I find it amazing that Burke constantly bashed Lowe last summer and everyone thought it was funny. Lowe opens his mouth ONCE and he's out of line.

Anyone who thinks Burke has even a shred of class is clearly brain dead. Or doesn't know the meaning of "class" is. A jackass, yes. A person of class? No.

Even last week he was still going on about Lowe being a B@$+@** for his offer sheet to Penner.

No kidding. Burke has been throwing shots at Lowe below the belt for about a year. Lowe let it go and took it like a man, but enough was enough when Burke had a big whiney fit a couple days ago.

They sure as hell didn't rush in front of a microphone and tee off on Gillis about it.

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm sick and tired of hearing these two morons mouth off at each other in the press - either meet up somewhere and have it out, or shut the hell up ... but quit yapping at each other like a couple of women on Jerry Springer. As it is, the way they're both carrying on they each need to be armed with a purse.

Really?

You're trying to play down acquiring two of the three best defensemen in the NHL, and signing a 40 goal scorer to a $1 million contract?

You're also forgetting about his dumping of dead weight Fedorov's salary in exchange for Francois Beauchemin. Letting the overrated and overpaid Penner drift away for a first round draft pick.

And stocking the entire roster with mid-to-heavyweights who trampled everyone in the 2007 playoffs with little to no effort.

As well has his continued brilliant loophole abuse to keep the Ducks technically within the cap while, by all accounts, they should have been well over it at several points in the last few years.

The only moves I'd bash Burke for, are the Bertuzzi contract (a risk taken) and letting Bryzgalov drop on waivers.

I think all of this bad blood comes from the fact that Lowe got pounded by Burke in both the Penner fiasco and the Pronger trade.

Lowe has been hush hush until about an hour ago. You want to blame someone and call somebody a moron direct it towards Brian Burke. He's been beating his dead horse for months on end and I don't blame Lowe for finally snapping at the blowhard.

This is one of the less clever comments written on this board. Burke is many things but classy would be waaaaay down the list and his inability to count is what started this.

LOL what? More like the other way around. Every time Burke opens his mouth he's a fat, idiot, moron, loser and now Lowe does the same and it's a beatdown of epic proportions.

its his only excuse for the year. His other option would be to blame scotty and selanne, which would probably hurt their performance/likelyhood to even show up next year.

And for the anaheim fan about to say "what about murray, sens sucked" (because this forum is allways about attacking the poster that attacked your team), i say that murray has his scapegoats too. He fired one and bought out the other.
