Glad they didnt go after him. Depends on the price but I despise him as a player.

I despise him as a person but would gladly accept him as a player.

How do you defend him though? After everything I said about how the 'Nyucks behaved during the playoffs... loathe is the word, can't help it. Personally I think that was one of the best pieces of internal dialogue I've seen from their level ( assuming of course it wasn't 'written' for camera ;) ) well it jives with my bent so, biased who, me? ...but whatever, it was interesting.

He's cleaned up his game a lot in Dallas. His image is still tarnished, obviously, from behaving like a dirtbag when he was younger, but at this point he's really not much different than any other player.

I would also have loved to have a 1-2 punch of Ribeiro-Grabovski down the middle, to rub in the faces of Habs fans.

I guess all I can say is that the book wasn't closed on him when that video was taken, not sure it ever should be.

Burke:

"We don't do hats."

Love it, couldn't agree more.

You know what really impressed me?  Burke, and for all the bravado and truculence he presents, is a very polite and old fashioned gentleman.

Case in point: The just draft Biggs and he walks over to the table. Burke stands up, puts out his hand and says "Brian Burke, pleasure to meet you."  Look.  This is the Leafs' GM who everyone in hockey knows but he's polite and unassuming enough to do a proper introduction to the kid.  I keep being more and more impressed with how classy BB is.

To be honest, I don't know much about him, but I can see those games on TV, so I'll try to watch a game or so with Mora. But so far he has 1 goal and 2 assists in 15 games.
Life only demands from you the strength that you possess. Only one feat is possible; not to run away.
