Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
Brian Burke doesn’t have to be in Afghanistan today.
Heck, there’s undoubtedly hardcore Maple Leaf fans who probably think he shouldn’t be, but instead should be at home manning the phones and getting ready to knock on Brad Richards’ front door on Friday when the NHL free agent season opens.
Instead, the Leaf president and general manager is with our Canadian troops in Kandahar, and that’s where he’ll be when Richards and other unrestricted free agents officially become available looking to make themselves extraordinary rich, or richer.
That Burke will be overseas spending time with Canadian men and women serving for anything but personal wealth, well, that’s a intriguing contrast.
