Just walking past Brian Burke being interviewed, the topic of John Tavares came up. Several great points:
When asked if talks for the number one pick ever went past an initial inquiry, Burke said “I asked Garth what it would take and it involved a lot. I asked Garth if it was even a road worth exploring and he said no”.
Burke also went on to talk about hearing how the Islanders were after Duchene and NOT Tavares. Seems Burkie and Logan had the same sources – unfortunate for both parties, good for the Islanders.
You never know what you’ll hear down in the interview room. I am glad Ken made me wait.
In your face Brian Burke, in. your. face.
