What does the future hold for Brian Burke?
Thu, November 13, 2008

Brian Burke turned down a contract extension to remain general manager of the Anaheim Ducks, citing the need to spend more time with his family and the strong state of the team he helped turn into a Stanley Cup champion as reasons for leaving.

He was replaced by Bob Murray, who has spent the past three seasons in the Ducks' front office.

Suddenly, Burke has emerged as one of the top candidates for teams looking to snag a GM with a marquee name and an impressive track record.

What does the future hold for Burke? Which team do you see him joining down the road? Have your say in our forum.

Murray replaces Burke as Ducks GM

Burke is a loud mouth fat, gay blow hard. He attempts to bully everyone around using his lawyer speak to try and scare other GMs. He is a pork chop away from a heart attack, fat over bearing knob. The only thing more overrated and scary as him is the rumour out there that the other fat loud mouth bully named Pat Quinn might be taking over the Oilers if Lowe pulls another of his mind fart deals and fires Mac T. Lets hope calmer heads prevail, Lowe keeps Mac T, Burke and Quinn go on diets and anger management courses. Perhaps the NHL can send the rest of the GMs on a course for dealing with difficult people. Oh well. Burkes gay.

Brian Burke just took a 8-2 loss Tuesday night versus the lowly Dallas Stars. Way to go Burkesy!!

Better than Bryan Murray, that's for sure.

The Burke era will come to heads quickly with Pettie and Tananbaum there. They would have saved alot of money had they been able to convince Fletcher to stay for awhile.

Sick of hearing about the guy, and the center of the universe... Who are the morons that insist on making all the hockey news on canoe center on the leafs...

who cares,we're talking about the leafs here! There are 5 other Canadian teams that are much more interesting!

B. You state, look at the records of Anahiem and Vancouver. If you knew a shmick about hockey you would know that Burke did not build these teams, rather he jumped ships when he destroyed them. Come on B your not as dumb as I think you are. Now go look it up. Everyone is correct in that Burke messed up great teams put in his lap. I guess the only saving grace is that the Laffs already suck, so he can't hurt them that bad. Then again there is always bankruptcy. No I guess thats not an optin either as you Laff fans continue to support the lousy on ice product you call the Leafs. Best of luck too you.

There's lots of 'Huff and Puff' about this Messiah named Brian Burke aka "The Mouth that Roars". I fail to see the reason why there is so much hope heaped with the arrival of this mega ego. He seems to always talk as if his knickers are in a twist. Some disillusioned fans and media types appear to be impressed by this demeanour. The previous post by 'Bobby Clarke' sums it all up. I'm from Missouri on this one!

Finally the long wait is over! The Stanley Cup is coming to Toronto. Brian will git r done. See you all in Toronto next June for the parade!
