Burke To The Rescue

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke has come to the defence of Ryan Getzlaf, the new Canadian captain.

Getzlaf was big news in Finland Monday morning as a result of an alleged incident in a Helsinki night club called ‘Circus’.

“I saw Getzy late Saturday night (actually early Sunday morning). I left for the airport between 4:30 and 4:45 a.m. from the hotel where we (Team USA) stayed, the same hotel as Team Canada, the Hotel Sokos Presidentii,” said Burke in an e-mail defending his former Anaheim Duck player.

“Getzy was not intoxicated and was not with a woman. We had a brief and pleasant conversation and then I headed to the airport.

No proof Burke rode off on a white horse to the airport.

Here’s the thing:  What Burke says won’t matter to anyone.  All anyone knows is that Getzlaf and Perry act like d*cks on the ice all the time, so to believe they’re being that way off it is no stretch at all.
