Burke’s Winning Formula

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post,

With one more victory over Ottawa the Anaheim Ducks would append an NHL championship to general manager Brian Burke’s résumé.
It would also add to Burke’s image as one of the league’s most fascinating figures - a silver-haired, erudite, Ivy League-educated, frequently brusque, seldom-smiling man of contradictions who shows little of himself to the public.
“The private side of Brian Burke is private,” Burke said in Ottawa this week. “My family sees (that), my friends see that. But I’m not interested in you guys understanding me.”
One thing is clear: Burke’s passionate belief in letting players self-police the game. It’s more typical of an old-school hockey man from Alberta than of an American with a Harvard law degree.
