Brian Burke insisted all along his GM search would be so extensive it might not conclude until the very last candidate was interviewed following the Stanley Cup final.

However, one week and one candidate in Burke wrapped up his sole interview with the hiring of 44-year-old Brad Treliving, a media-savvy son of an RCMP officer whose hallmark as assistant GM in Phoenix has been hard work.

"If I didn't think we had the right guy I would have kept on interviewing -- I really believe we got the right guy," said Burke who thanked the Phoenix Coyotes for giving the Calgary Flames a ten-day window to talk to Treliving as opposed to a straight-arm until after the draft.
