Brian Burke On The Flames

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

“I hate losing — that’s never going to change,” Burke told the Calgary Sun on Friday, ending nearly a month of silence.

“It’s not acceptable. We’re not getting the job done, and players know it’s not acceptable. The way it manifests itself is I don’t sleep. So I haven’t slept much.”

“But,” added Burke, the Flames president of hockey operations, “I’ve been through this before.”...

“The coaching staff isn’t going anywhere — I think they’re doing a fine job,” said Burke, sticking to his Dec. 12 promise made the day he fired GM Jay Feaster.

“We’re still having trouble scoring goals and keeping them out of our net. And we’re small. But there are two building blocks I see — that the work ethic matches or exceeds opponents’ and that we stay in the system.

“We’re doing both things. We can’t get to the next level without doing those two things first.”
