Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dan Barnes of the Edmonton Journal,
It was a fine whine all right, reminiscent of the moaning and groaning Burke emitted from his Vancouver pulpit when the Sedins were apparently treated poorly by nasty foes and myopic refs a while ago. He uncorked another bottle when Todd Bertuzzi did his thug thing on Steve Moore and was duly suspended.
But Burke simply couldn’t do the math with Penner at $4.25 million and now he must make do with Bertuzzi, who was originally tagged to replace Teemu
Selanne’s goals on the wing. Now Bert will have to stay out of the penalty box, the infirmary and the commissioner’s doghouse long enough to score 29 for Penner too. Good luck, Duck.
If Burke isn’t on the phone at this moment begging Selanne and Scott Niedermayer to stave off retirement for one more year, he ought to be getting a call from his bosses.

added 9:42am, from Loose Change at the Hockey News,
Frankly, I’ve had enough of you, Mr. Crankypants.
Brian Burke makes Ebenezer Scrooge look like Tony Robbins, eating a tub of ice cream. What the heck does it take for you to get – and stay – happy?
We can forgive your irascible early years. You were young and it was the Hartford Whalers after all. Smiles were not in their budget.
