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.

  1. I am guessing that Garth made the same comment he made afterwards, that the reason he chose him was because John let him win at golf a few weeks back…but it would be funnier to think they’re lauging at Burke lol

  2. Beautiful pic! On the video, Snow even steps back after that moment like he’s really cracking up.

    Snow just earned a longer leash in my fan’s head. Playing Burke: Icing on the cake.

    • I honestly think it’s one of the funniest posts I have ever done. I saw the picture and already had the post done – it made the joke that much better in my eyes. lol
