Like, first rounder for Blake type of funny.
I'll bet Burke will turn it down....I believe Blake has young children and that is why Burke puts a freeze on trading before the NHL deadline.....Maybe Burke has seen players traded before and it has a huge effect on thier families....how would you like to be moved to another city and have to find living arrangements during the holidays for family instead of celebrating like everyone else....I know where i want to be during the holidays and so does Burke....really some Bone-head comments around here!

Does anyone remember why Burke "CHOSE" to leave the Ducks????

heres a hint....he was too far away from his family in Boston!!!!

Harmless joke; I thought it was quite funny actually.

He does it because he doesn't want to uproot families during the holiday season. That has nothing to do with how the team is playing.
