Prediction for what he will say

Happy with Bozak

happy with Dion (Watters will make a comment implying Dion will be captain, Burke will get angry and say hes not talking about it)

Will talk about Irwin. Will use words such as "big kid" "truculent" "hard nosed" and "Toronto boy"

Pissed off about the outcome of this season (will save the really big blowup for next week when we're officially eliminated)

Very happy with Kessel. Would do trade again.

Will be active on draft day and in free agency.

Kaberle is a quality player and a good person. Expects him to be here next season, and looks forward to signing him (watters will probably make comment about how hes as good as gone and Burke will again get angry).

Might comment on kadri.

hmmmmmm, thats probably it. Lets see how many I get.

And of course the praise for JFJ and how Nonis stepped up this week getting Burke's dry cleaning and making a great trade.

You will get them all, no doubt.

Monster and Kulemin's contracts will also get a mention. "We're working on it" will be the answer.

And of course he will praise JFJ for some player and praise Nonis for getting his dry cleaning for him, along with making a great trade.

Even though I'm sure I know what will be said. I'll still tune in and listen for key words/phrases like:

"You know what, Watters? *&%& You!"
"Yes (insert superstar) will be on the Leafs next year"
"Kaberle is soooo getting traded"
"I'm gonna make a monster signing on July 1"
"I'll get my scouts another 1st rounder"

+A swear of any kind

I think you mean "We're going to sit down and see what makes sense."

"I will not ask Tomas Kaberle or any player on our team to waive their NTC. How many damn times do I have to say it to you folks"

"I am happy with Kessel, and would do the trade again and four times on Sundays. As for those who are worried about where Boston picks, who cares? I hope Chiarelli gets a good player"

"Colton Orr is tougher than a night in jail and three Derek Booagaard's put together"

"I'm happy with how the team has been playing. Ron is safe and I always said, if I had to trade the team first I would"

I like when Burke gets angry and swears. Hell it's awesome when Watters blows up and swears too.

Just tuned in, referring to Brayden Irwin gonna play at least 1 game this year.
Will burn off 1 year off his contract just like Hanson. (I dunno why they do this)

Says his skating is unconventional. Hopes he'll spend 1/2 year in AHL next year and makes the team.

Sounds like Leaf managment view Irwin as another Hanson... top six forward potential.

He'll probably play Thursday or Saturday.

Burke said Hanson was top 6 too, which he is not nor will he ever be.

It's a show of respect toward the player. They're not going to limit his potential right after signing him, most of these young guys want to be more than a bottom 6 plumber.

*Irwin was signed targeted to be a top six skills guy; that's why he was signed.

*Irwin will play a game. [So maybe Thursday/Saturday]. Burke promised his folks that this wouldn't mess his graduation. Nor will it burn his eligibility.. regarding his contract that. [I dunno, this is confused me].
[I love how Burke made this deal with his parents heh]

*Irwin skates weird, but Burke doesn't think he needs a lot of time in the minors, but this is up to him [Irwin]

*Re: Kulemin; Burke says that the "threat" of KHL was a nothing comment. He wants a fair deal, and if he can't get it; then Kulemin is gone. if Kule wants to stay, they'll get a deal. Re: Gustavasson: Burke says again he wants to sign a fair deal with Gus, but if he doesn't want to, he can wait for an offer sheet. He doesn't really care (hee).

*Burke gets irritated when people boast about having a great "March" or a great 2-3rd period. it's an 82 game season/60 minute game. That's why he got pissed last year. This year, the team is younger, and they are clearly working harder, it's proof in the pudding. He also doesn't care what people say or think about how he's running the team. [Lmao - this dude asked Burke if he can drop off suggestions to his office.... this is hilarious]. So he listens to the comments but doesn't respond.

*Re: centremen. Not committed in saying that Bozak is small. (Can put weight on). Kadri is not committed to being on the team until he's made the team. The defense is near where it needs. Goaltending is good. So he's preparing for centremen shopping UFA Day. (But not a "BIG" guy).

*Burke is eh about only having 4 million for 3 players. [Because he can trade ppl, bury money and stuff].

The end.
