I think that Brian Burke is an overrated General Manager and alot of his praise should be given to Senators GM Brian Murray. The only good move he has made was the pronger deal. He lost Penner to RFA when he had ample time to sign him. Neidermeyer only signed because his brother plays on the team, it had nothing to do with Brain Burke. He signed Bertuzzi to a moronic deal which makes him un-tradable. I think you have to look back when he was the GM of the Canucks and road Cloutier for all those years. That is the main reason the Canucks never won a cup. The ducks were a team that was stacked before he cam into town. I think there are alot of better GM's out there right now and it makes me cringe when I hear that the leafs want this guy. I know he said on off the record that he like the ducks, but the money they guy would get from the leafs would be enough to make him eat his words.
