Who's right in the Burke-Lowe feud? Tue, July 8, 2008
The NHL has warned feuding general managers Kevin Lowe and Brian Burke that they need to end their public dispute or face significant fines.
The warning for Edmonton’s Lowe and Anaheim’s Burke came during a conference call with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, deputy commissioner Bill Daly and executive vice-president Colin Campbell.
Burke criticism’s of Lowe began last July after the Oilers made a US$21.25-million, five-year offer sheet to restricted free agent Dustin Penner and the Ducks did not match it. Burke has repeatedly blamed Lowe and the Penner offer sheet for spiralling salaries on young restricted free agents.
Lowe finally shot back at Burke on July 4 during an interview that included some stinging comments about the Anaheim GM on Edmonton radio station The Team 1260.
