Downward Cycle

from the Hartford Courant,
When asked if it might feel strange walking into the visitors locker room at the Civic Center for the first time in nearly 15 years next Saturday, Sean Burke, sporting a black Springfield Falcons T-shirt, broke into a smile and uttered a reply worthy of a wily 17-year veteran of the NHL. "I'm kind of on a strange road right now in general," Burke said as the Wolf Pack rallied for a 5-3 victory Friday night in Springfield... I wasn't totally surprised [to be sent down]," Burke said. "I kind of got wind of it about a month ago after they signed Holmqvist. For what it matters, I didn't play myself out of the NHL. I got in a situation where I wasn't in the plans any longer. "But, hey, when I came into the league I took somebody's job, so at some point somebody takes yours, and that's the way the cycle goes...."
