Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ron MacLean of CBC,
I was hoping to have Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke join me to answer question we’ve been raising on the show, but he declined.
I asked if I could give the exact quote he gave me for his decision to opt out. He said no. After giving him my views on the importance of the dialogue, Brian said “Explain it, then. I have no obligation here. Write and say whatever you want.” That would be fine, except that saying and writing what we want is the reason Brian’s not coming on the show.
He made it clear he did not like what has been said on our show. I explained a few bits about the balance we’ve brought, and explained the value of his appearance to our show and his fans.
Brian quipped, “Methinks, the lady doth protest too much”. Got me there. Funny it was on his mind in the hours after his vote of confidence for Ron Wilson.
