For hockey interviews, Ralph can ask some decent questions. But after the player quickly responds, Ralph will then spend 5 minutes on some stupid soapbox before asking his next question. So in a 15 interview, we'll get about 10 minutes of Ralph rambling, 3 minutes of Mr T making silly comments such as the sumo wrestlers, and 2 minutes of the player actually being able to speak.
Seems like an upbeat guy, I imagine he'll hit it off with Thornton and Clowe pretty quickly.
I think he'll like Boyle too, fellow offensive Dman who enjoys rock (at least I think Burns does, haven't met too many snake people who don't ) He has also talked about learning from Boyle in almost every interview, I have to think he's somewhat excited about playing with him.
That is classic Burns. He's a happy go lucky fellow. He gets along with everybody in the locker room because he's open, funny, a joker, and doesn't take things too seriously. And, kids of the other hockey players will love going to see Bursie's zoo. Brian Rolston once said that his kids would rather go to Burnsie's place than the actual zoo. Though, they should be careful because for a few months, a snake was loose in his house. Then, nobody wanted to visit him.
