Burke on OTR says Isles leaning towards Duchene

Said he's talked with Isles, TBay, ATL, says Snow is not moving the pick short of being blown away, and that they will take a Forward, likely Duchene. Thoughts?

Happy I don't live on Long Island anymore. Islanders fans will riot if the pick isn't Tavares.

He can talk all he wants, speculating is almost pointless at this point.. we'll see in 25 hours.

The fact that Burke took this information to the press is exactly why Garth Snow wouldn't have given him an honest answer in the first place.

It's entirely possible that the Isles are planning to take Duchene, but even if they are there's no incentive for the Isles to tell that to Burke. In all likelihood this is a case of a GM posturing to make it easier for himself to move his pick.

yep, burke blowing more smoke out of his ass. That likely means Isles are not trading their pick and are taking Tavares.

lol Burke's full of ****. Either that or the Isle's have totally lied to him. Probably the latter, as a form of saying, "**** off, Burke."

Burke hasn't done anything that would be considered "tampering" here, especially since nobody currently holds the rights of Tavares, Duchene, or Hedman.

too much conflicting information here. I can't even guess what is going to happen.

Even worse, I don't know what I want to happen.

It not that he won't trade the pick, it's if Colorado accepts the trade. Colorado probably doesn't want to trade for first overall.

I have a theory that the Islanders are leaking Duchene so when they pick Hedman the fanbase will be relieved

I think Burke is trying to cause a stir like he did at the trade deadline. Remember his "I think 6 1st round picks will be traded?" I just think he's working the media to his advantage.

As Darth mentioned, no team owns their rights yet, but I get what you're saying. If he did in fact have privileged info and leaked it to the press that could affect how other teams plan for the draft. However, this was nothing like that. It was simply a question of "who do you think the Isles will take with the first?"

He said "Until recently I would have said Hedman, but they will take a forward. I would give the nod to Duchene."

If that was they just trade it to Colorado? They'd still get him plus some.

Burke is the Sith Lord and Snow is just a dumb Storm Trooper. This is just a mind trick. He's only got, what, 7 other GM's to perform this one for it to work?
