08:20 AM ET 08.26 | Brian Burke infused some of his own verbal truculence Wednesday in Toronto. One of seven panelists on the topic of a "global event agenda" at the world hockey summit on Wednesday, Burke delivered a fiery rant on the various hardships international competition puts on players and the league itself. "Our players don't get paid when they go to these tournaments," Burke said. ... "I've been the GM of four U.S. teams at the world championships, and I love the tournament. I hope we always go ... [but] our players don't get anything. I think they got $1,000 for 22 days of work last year. They got one business-class ticket to bring over their wife, or a parent, or a brother -- they didn't bring their families over unless they reached into their own pockets and paid for it. These guys are volunteers. Everyone makes money off of these tournaments except the players."
