    Is this strictly for optics? Isn't Burke still owed another year at 5 million on his contract with the Leafs? I don't see the need for him to rush into anything.
    Head to Head League: 1 point for G, 1 point for A. 2 for Goalie win, 3 for SO.
    Start 6 guys every week. 3 O, 2 D and 1G. No substitutions once they are in (before the first game starts on Monday).
    Protect 3 players every year in keeper.
    10 rounds of drafting
    F: Kessel, RNH, Ribeiro, Tarasenko, Hudler, E. Kane, Erat
    D: Goligoski, Kulikov, Shattenkirk, Jones, Vatanen, Faulk
    G: Anderson, Lehner, Ward, Nabokov

    It come full circle. I'd like to thank Burke for his effort in Toronto and for treating this entire situation like a true professional.

    Hasn't come to full circle yet. Burke is still with the Leafs organisation.

    Burke said he is still on the board of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment as a senior advisor though he will have no part in any of their hockey matters and added that the NHL was fine with that arrangement since his Ducks’ role is part time.

    A double agent! This clearly means that the Leafs are going to get Perry, Getzlaf, B.Ryan, Selanne, Koivu, Fowler, Beauchemin, Boudreau, Mischa Barton, the ice girls, and a crate of oranges.

    So he scouts for the Ducks while being paid by the Leafs? Sweet gig.

    They're also getting the rights to those Disney movies and majority ownership of the team.

    The knucklepucks will be fired by Dion Phaneuf and for some reason Joffrey Lupul is stuck inside the other team's net each time. Never misses the net once.

    Also, isn't it interesting that Burke agrees to basically work for two teams after campaigning so hard for Rick Dudley to not participate in Habs' draft prep? I know the situations are different but I still find it interesting.
