VANCOUVER - When it comes to commenting about his new team, former Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke, now the director of hockey operations for the Calgary Flames, is pretty tight-lipped.

When it comes to speaking about fisticuffs on the ice, well, that's a different story.

In Thursday's edition of USA Today, Burke penned a column supporting fighting in the sport. Leave it to Burke to always take the controversial side of a story.
