04:34 PM ET 02.21 | The Anaheim Ducks have hired former general manager Brian Burke as a part-time professional scout, according to an announcement by general manager Bryan Murray on Thursday morning. Burke had previously been the vice president and general manager of the team from 2005-08. During that time they won their only Stanley Cup championship in franchise history. Bruke stepped down from the position in 2008, in order to take over as the Toronto Maple Leafs general manager. He held that role until 2013 when he was fired.

Are they Ducks going to let him speak freely to the media? Or, are they going to duct tape his beak?

Please ... let him speak!

You'd think the "Anaheim Ducks Team Site" would know that their GM was Bob Murray not Bryan.

Of course they could always claim it's the Burkie Effect already kicking in.

I feel sorry for Bruce. He doesn't need help from the Irked one.

That must be a picture of the Irked One's first day on the job.

From President & General Manager to part-time scout, oh my, how the self-proclaimed mighty have fallen. But more importantly, agreed, REM is better, much better!

That is a really good pic of BB to go with this story......him sitting alone in the fan seats with a WTFHHTM look on his face.

WTFHHTM = WTF has happened to me?
