Via Sportsnet, Brian Burke discussed compliance buyouts, trades on the draft floor and his desire to become a GM in the NHL again.
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Brian Burke is trying to promote movement in the NHL.
Three executives told Sun Media yesterday that the Ducks president and GM has asked NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly to study a proposal that would allow teams to pick up a portion of a player’s contract to help facilitate trades.
While Burke tried a similar move last year with a per-transaction cap of $2 million (all terms US) and a per-team cap of $4 million, it didn’t fly. It’s believed he has lowered the amount this year to $500,000 per transaction and several GMs are on board.
