    More on Burke:

    Burke will shake things up

    PENTICTON – Is Brian Burke the right man for the job in Calgary?
    We’ll let you know — as soon as we get a result on his last kick at a major rebuild, in Toronto.
    But with as many experts picking the Maple Leafs to miss the playoffs this season as make them — five seasons after Burke began the project, only to be fired last January — who could possibly call Burke’s “expedited rebuild” in Toronto either a success or a failure, at this point?
    Update: The Calgary Flames will announce Burke’s addition at a press conference at 12 p.m. ET Thursday. Watch it live on Sportsnet and sportsnet.ca.
    At a morning press conference in Calgary, home to the National Hockey League’s latest and deepest scorched earth project, Burke will be named to an overall hockey title by the Calgary Flames, perhaps the president of hockey operations and governor.

    The bluster of Burke will, if nothing else, add some interest to what looks to be a dismal season ahead for Flames fans.

    And you gotta expect that "Feast'rFamine" is now looking back over his shoulder just the way Sutter did when Jay first came to town...;)

    Lost in the sublety of this announcement is that Old "Rent a Barn" Burke is now Jay "The Buffet"'s boss.
    Burke yapped about how him and Buffet Boy are long-time pals and on the same page.

    That should last about 4 days!!!

    Watch for Burke to scout another coach by the time season is 3/4 over - for sure post-season. Methinx his two prime choices would be Randy Carlyle or Boudreau.....
